I ran into another when working on a spec file for centos 5 (which I 
sent to the xymon-devel list with the hope of working with others to 
create a single, community approved & used rpm spec file).  If you build 
the RPMs on an x86_64 system, /usr/lib64 is used for the filepaths in 
the RPMs instead of /usr/lib and this breaks the hardcoded /usr/lib 
paths in the init scripts.

I think we should work towards creating a new spec file that will 
produce a SRPM and RPMs that build cleanly in any arch, in any Redhat 
flavored environment.
