answers to comment #10:

* convert-fcrontab is not needed on fedora (it is used to convert very old 
fcrontab files to the present format): it can be safely removed from the 
package.

* fcrondyn should be suid fcron and not root.

* fcronsighup has to be suid root: the idea of this very small program is to 
be suid root so as it can send a signal to fcron daemon, while being very 
small to ensure maximum security.

* concerning the rights about fcron: I think the question should rather be: 
why would we add more rights to fcron binary than it needs ? The less rights, 
the more secure!
