What I did for the last release was create an SRPM based on Lamar's spec
file, but including PostGIS as an extra RPM module. I will be doing that
in the next couple days and will announce it to the PostGIS list at that
time. If you want to start off right away, there is a set of ix86 RPMS
and an SRPM in http://postgis.refractions.net/rpms built for version 0.5
