Hey Jiri,

Ok I've adjusted the 1.306 CVS revision of dhcp.spec to build on RHEL5.

Basically, there were only a few changes... had to:

   * Remove requirement of libcap-ng; patch ignored later.
   * Ignore three patches (CLOEXEC, noipv6, capabilities).
   * Not run autoreconf.

I've attached the new .spec which builds on RHEL5.  These changes are
mentioned in the Changelog.

If you have any recommendations as to how to get the three ignored
patches actually working on RHEL5 w/ 2.6.18.x kernel, especially the
noipv6 one, I'd be most interested.

Thanks for your help.
