[Pipet Devel] getting piper built. RPM, deb, etc.

A couple of the prerequisites for piper have C++ code. Since RedHat 7.0 uses
gcc 2.96, it's best to recompile these rather than installing binaries, as
there's some symbol mangling possible, I hear.

I found src.rpm's for everything piper needs, except for the omniORB. Would
it be useful to  provide locations/links or mirrors for those files in
src.rpm form so all architectures, versions, and whatnot of RPM based linux
distributions are supported? If it's not a waste of time, I can provide

I noticed that PyXML 0.5.1 and 4Suite 0.9 (which contains 4DOM 0.10
strangely) conflict, but not in the way that the piper INSTALL say they do.
The conflict is over __init__.py and __init__.pyc. Should I be worried that
no other files were mentioned as conflicting (at least by the RPM install)?

For omniORB, I was rather surprised when I did "make export" that it
installed into the current directory. /home/gears/junk/deleteme/omni/lib is
not where I'd like it. Where's the standard place for it? I contacted the
omniORB folks to see if they would like me to make RPMs for it (there are
.debs already). 

Even if they say yes, I was kind of thinking it might be a little premature
to build piper RPMs, although I can do this at some point. What do you
