Hum. *shrug* I wonder if I should fix this NOW, as I'm going to switch
to automake, and most of the chown stuff is nonsense anyway.

README should be built, but this will only be fixed after the automake

Wee. brp-compress is no longer used on SuSE 7.3. If I hate something
about RPM, it's
1- bad and incomplete documentation of RPM itself
2- zilch documentation of RPM macros that vendors add.

How can that happen? Misconfiguration of inetd.conf?

Halfway. ln_log already logs to stderr, so the fprintf can be thrown
out. Thanks a lot for the patch.
