Oh well, so much for that idea! According to the release notes
(http://wiki.centos.org/Manuals/ReleaseNotes/CentOS5.6) there is a list
of packages modified by centos - and that includes httpd. So the
absence of 'centos' in the release string does _not_ mean that the
package is unmodified (ie it's merely re-built).

Sigh!!! Just have to wait for the centos SRPMS then
