    Good to hear.  Thanks for continued patience.

    The problem with this alternative is that not all systems that want to 
    build from SRPM are going to have chrpath, just as they are not going to 
    have autoreconf and its dependencies.
      Since I've never seen the actual failure message that you need 
    autoreconf/chrpath to fix, could you please draft an FAQ entry for this 
    problem?  Having documentation for the '--define "with_autoreconf 1"' 
    trick would certainly make it more useful.
