  Redid packaging of the NCBI toolkit RPMs.  The binaries are better 
captured by the newer system, and the sizes are somewhat larger.  
Packages built for P4 (labeled i686), Opteron (x86_64), Athlon, and 
source (src).  The packages are located at 
http://downloads.scalableinformatics.com/downloads/ncbi/  and labeled 
2.2.8-1 .  The x86_64 was built under Fedora Core for AMD64, working on 
getting a SUSE load on the machine as well.  The athlon and p4 packages 
were built under RH9.0.  If you try to install a binary and it fails to 
work (crashes and dumps core), pull the source and run (as root)

       rpmbuild --rebuild NCBI-2.2.8-1.src.rpm

on your machine.  It will eventually generate the RPM barring 
compilation/permissions problems.  You might need to do this if you are 
using a pre-RedHat 9.0 machine (the NPTL issue).
