I haven't looked at the .spec file, but that should definitely be
modified to be as FSH-compliant as possible. Whether it gets installed
in /usr, /opt or /usr/local by default is up to you, but it definitely
should be relocatable to suit local needs. You wouldn't believe how few
RPMS are actually relocatable. It drives me crazy.

With the next branch, I plan to re-write the autotools stuff. Then we
can get a confdir.
