There are no RPMS yet.  I'm hoping to get to them sometime "soon".
I'm still trying to merge all the RPM Specfile suggestions from
everyone over the past couple years and decide how I want the 1.4 RPMS
to behave.  For example, the guys at UMich separated out the authlibs
into their own package, but I'm not sure whether it needs to be its
own package....  I'm still debating.

I'm also debating which RH/FC platforms to support.  Even though I use
FC3 on my desktop I'm seriously thinking that I only want to support
FC4 and EL4, due to the way they use the kernel-devel packages.
Anything earlier than that would be a pain to have pre-built kernel

We'll see.
