Well that one you have.  Why do you have it?  Because I guess an
@CentOS.org Hat decided to build that one while all the other ones were
plain out skipped in-between?  My ohh my the Heart and Soul was
forgotten.  All of 4 - FOUR of them.

Effectively your stuck with the one you got that works or you have to
learn to build your own from the red hat sources.

Maybe so be carefull.  So insightfully what I do for my precious
customers on CentOS is I actually build the updates from the RH Sources
to keep them happy because some do like to plunder about when are
updates coming out. 

Maybe the cache directory eatted them up?
