Re: Attempting to compile rpm5 for RH Linux EL5

RPM carries an internal version of xar largely
because most Linux distros don't carry or
maintain xar reliably.

Over time, rpm5.org has likely started to diverge from
upstream XAR in some complicated ways, particularly
with how XAR is configured. There's no intent to
diverge, just noone has bothered to verify how
closely internal <-> external xar agree, most of
the changes are needed to use automake (which
upstream XAR doesn't use).

Either getand install XAR externally from

XAR         [5] optional  1.5.2   1.5.2   http://code.google.com/p/xar/

or try the internal version (which should be in the
released rpm tarball iirc).
