The nice thing about an .src.rpm file is that it contains everything required
to build the package, including not only the pristine source, but also
any patches required to get it to build.

Install the .src.rpm and then look in /usr/src/redhat in the
"SOURCES" directory.  The "SPEC" directory includes the "recipe"
for building the package.  If you do a "rpm -bp whatever.spec", and
in the "BUILD" directory you will have the source tree including
patches, ready to copy over to the Sparc and build.

 I love the smell of napalm in the morning.  It smells like...  Victory.
