I can remove that it, but technically that statement is correct. Red
Hat did provide that compilation and those options.
That is not stating that there is any support being provided by Red Hat,
nor is it saying that the package belongs to Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
If Red Hat wants us to take it out, we can ... but I see it as providing
credit for creating the compilation and not claiming ownership or
stating a distribution it is part of.
