that of course is a generalization and an opinion. This also reflects
the state of Linux rpm packaging which is not entirely accessible to
Linux users.

I agree that a lot of people don't know how to do it. I don't know about
the 'most people' as I think people could actually do it if they knew
how and of course one of the more confusing things for people is fishing
out the finished RPM's from /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/arch
