We're providing the links for 4.08.1 since that's all we have, and a lot of
people still seem to use RH6.

This will only work if you install RPM 4, no? I couldn't find a way to make
RPM 4 produce v3 RPMs, either. But never mind, I installed RPM 4, installed
the source RPM, downgraded again to RPM 3, and am now building RH 6 RPMs,
which I'll make available.

One problem I had: the spec file doesn't have a dependency on the jade
package, but it needs it for some DSSSL files without which the docs won't
build.
