538 looks to be the same issue. Glad to see it's on the roadmap.

Will do.

I agree that it is packaging, and why I reported to Redhat.  I wanted to 
include you on it, in case you had any interaction with the Fedora 
team.  Without building all of the databases in with the next upgrade, 
they will definitely break things.

I'll admit to not wanting to build my own from source so I'll wait until 
the new versions fix the build.  Looking forward to 1.6!!!
