I take it you've never tried Debian then ;)

really the packaging is only as good as the spec/control file info, the same applies to the cygwin packages etc. Debian is so "good" at this not because the technology is behind the package management there is so good*, it is because the packaging rules are rather explicit, strict, and enforced.

[*] it may be, but that's besides the point

I do not know if the SuSE packages are build using the spec from the GRASS source code, but you could check the rpm/ source code dir and submit any fixes you have.
