Someone posted a link to a python script that fairly neatly encapsulates all
the necessary steps (dependency checks, package ordering, and genhdlist) ... I
don't have the link handy - but I've been using it for the last three weeks
(with a few tweaks) and it's working for both 32 and 64-bit versions of RHEL4
for me.

If you want a copy I can send you one.
