Has anyone got, or know where to get, any src.rpm and i386.rpm
packages for the 1.7.x versions?

I can only find v1.6.6 at contrib.redhat.com


BTW, I don't know who built it, but the .spec file used for building
this version puts everything (apart from what goes into /usr/doc/)
into /usr/local/ !


No no no... this is a *managed* package!  It all goes into /usr/ thank
you very much!  Nothing managed goes into /usr/local/ - that's where
*unmanaged* (non-rpm) packages go.  PITA to have to get the .src.rpm
and then edit the .spec file and then do a rebuild to change this.
