I just sort of used that as a guideline and used EPEL first, Fedora-10
source second for packages to try to build because of things I noticed
in the changelogs, etc. I managed to get all the requisites handled
except for popt-devel which I discussed but that didn't seem to be the
deal breaker.

Now that I recognize that the current version of freeipa wasn't meant to
be built on RHEL, I will change course because I don't want to make that
my mission if they don't.
