Again, rpm5.org is vendor neutral, and so releases tar balls, not *.rpm
packages.

Meanwhile, the rpm.spec.in file vontained in rpm-5.0.2.tar.gz is  
mostly functional.
All I needed to fix was this minor problem:
--- rpm.spec.in 22 Jan 2008 21:52:44 -0000      2.450
+++ rpm.spec.in 5 Feb 2008 23:41:31 -0000

binary packages
on a Fedora 9 platform that are available at
