We provide SRPMs for building, which contain "fixed" httpd.spec files.
Either that or the i386 builds work as is for people on i386 platforms. I
personally deploy from a locally built SRPM, but that's me.

Ideally the rpm builds should be continuously integrated using something
like gump, so we catch the problem as it happens, rather than after

Anything that's non obvious or non standard is definitely an imposition on
a packager. Don't make the packager do something that can be (and already
