Attached is spec file for ldns SVN version 1205 that adds support for building
Fedora RPMS. I suggest it is added in a directory packaging/fedora/

This was tested on Fedora Core 4 i386 and x86_64. Source and binary rpms for
FC4 are available at ftp://ftp.xelerance.com/binaries/ldns/binaries/fedora/

I have split things in two packages. The "ldns" package contains the library
.so file and the man pages. The "ldns-devel" pacakge contains the include
files and the doc directory.

The 'make examples' target was broken and commented out.

I had to remove the doc/man directory to avoid duplicating the man pages.
I also had to manually remove the doc/.svn directory. These two removal
actions are done after the 'make install install-doc'.

You can add the repository for use with the Yum package manager by adding
the following in /etc/yum.conf or /etc/yum.repos.d/ldns.conf:

 	name=ldns - Fedora Core ldns packages
 	# get the key for paul at cypherpunks.ca from a key server (eg 
 	# or: finger paul at xelerance.com > nsdkey ; rpm --import nsdkey
 	# and enable gpgcheck to verify the package

All source and binary rpms have been signed with my key (paul at xelerance.com),
available on key servers and by using 'finger paul at xelerance.com'.

I was not sure how to treat the SVN version of "1205" compared to the last
release "0.70". To avoid assuming a wrong number that is too high, I opted
for the version 0.70_1205. (rpm does not like "-" characters in versions, it
confuses those with its own "-" for build versions)
