  Thanks, Roger. I've had a number of SysAdmins here tell me that they
always get the source package and rebuild it on their systems. I'm trying to
be lazy because I have too much to do as it is. However, this appears to be
the most parsimonious solution.

  I shall go forth and hunt down the .src.rpm and rebuild it in house.
