Thank you for reviewing this. Adaptive Computing does not support the RPM. It has been taken care of by the community. There have been some lively discussions concerning what should be in them. Any input from everyone is welcomed.

The current .spec file generated with the "./configure" options is
neither safe nor usable. It overrides, without announcement or any way
to reset with RPM settings, the RPM environment's settings for CFLAGS,
bindir, sbindir, and other system settings. You have to manually
override it in the ./configure crafted version of the ./configure line
in the '%setup' setup. It also seriously mishandels 'drmaa'
components, generating RPM's that don't actually have files in them if
the drmaa construction is disabled.

This is... so far out there there it's not even wrong.

I'll post my latest 2.4.11 .spec file, based on the EPEL SRPM's, tomorrow.
