as i was waiting for the c5-testing repo to catch up with redhat, i went 
ahead and built my own.  i had to take the php-extras rpm and merge the 
php changes between 5.1.6 and 5.2.6 into it.  and to get mock to be happy 
i had to add the normal extras repo into the mock config so that the 
mcrypt libraries were there.

i hesitate to make my repo public, but i know it is possible to make a new 
php-mcrypt based on the upstream code.
