I just checked - a normal ./configure ; make ; make install does not 
install the NOTICE file anywhere.

In theory the NOTICE file should be installed next to the LICENCE file.

The solution would then be to fix the make install target first - the 
RPM spec doesn't install what make install doesn't put there...

Is the missing NOTICE file reason enough to hold up the release of v2.0.50?
