That isn't rawhide though is it.  ;o)

The savage driver hasn't changed since 4.3.0-2 which is in RHL 9 
that I recall.  But if you're using RHL 8.0, it's a new driver 
compared to that.

You edit the spec file and set the build_$target to 1 for the OS 
target you wish to build for, and set all other targets to 0.  
Then edit the Release: line and add your initials to it.

ie:

Release: 30

becomes

Release: 30.as

or something similar.  Then do:  rpmbuild -ba XFree86.spec

Then rpm -Uvh XFree86-*4.3.0-$release*i386.rpm
