Yes.  I get more mail from external users using RHEL than Fedora, and
they often build from source so they can get the extra features we
don't ship (ie. virt-inspector).  Maybe I get more mail because they
have more problems, but RHEL 5.3 built from source / git clone is
nevertheless a requirement.

Are we planning to rev autotools in RHEL 5.4?  That might makes things
easier if we do it.
