This SRPM will build on CentOS-5.x ... IF ... you install gpgme,
gpgme-devel, and pth from RPMForge on the build machine (or make them
available for mock if you build with that).


(version is seahorse-2.20.3-3.src.rpm )

I have no idea if it works, but it is indeed the latest version from the
upstream sources which will build with the gnome-keyring version that
ships with CentOS-5.

If you wait to build on CentOS-5.4 (or if you are on the QA team) then
you do not need pth from RPMForge as that is added to RHEL-5.4.
