That's okay.  It sounds like the ROCKS folks might not be either.

We don't use ROCKS, so I'm not familiar with the ROCKS build system,
but if it has something that generates spec files, I suspect that tool
will need to be corrected.

If the spec file is already present (which is much more likely), it
merely needs to be changed as I outlined previously.

There's probably someone on the list who knows how the ROCKS build
system works and can offer pointers on how to correct the spec file
for Gold prior to building.
