I've already made the RPMS for 2.03_04 where I put apreq2-config in /usr/bin, by
directly installing it from the source directory into the $RPM_BUILD_ROOT. I
have done the same for the CVS version from a few days back. I still need to
release both. Should be all done in the next couple of days. I'll keep you

No worries. I'll keep an eye on it. For now, it'll just report whatever vanilla
package-name it has (i.e. I won't be changing anything).

With RPMS (and I would guess with Debian too), you can demand that Perl stuff
matches the version of C stuff, so there won't be any confusion there. It is
also very simple to do using Require in the RPM spec file. I'm not sure what's
in the spec file now, but I'll have look.
