Kinda. If you grab the src.rpm and take a look you can see exactly
what they do. The rpm cleans it up for better distro integration,  so
things "Just Work" when you get it. There's a pam auth file, bash
integration scripts, some patches to work properly in the
redhat/fedora environment, initscripts, stuff like that. By the way,
the new packages should be up now.
