As far as I know, yes. I build RPMs, using a tool called "mock" which
builds packages in a chroot. I have an RPM spec file, so all I did was
to update the spec file with the new version number, download the new
tarball, and build the package.

In fact, I just rebuilt both versions, one after the other, and I still
see differences, so I am going to save the build state of each, and diff
them. But that will take some time. I will report my findings later this
evening, or perhaps tomorrow.
