It's true that the upstream source packages don't automatically search
for 'febootstrap3', but I don't think this is a problem since that is
a RHEL 6 peculiarity, and it's easily worked around using
FEBOOTSTRAP=febootstrap3.  There are several other non-upstream
changes that we (Red Hat) make in RHEL, such as including the old
virt-inspector and removing unsupported features.
