Hi folks:

  I wanted to fix up my original packaging of the ncbi toolkit to make
full use of the RPM mechanism for easier compilation and installation on
clusters and other systems.  I built a spec file for it and created a
source RPM which you can pull down from



  There is nothing OS or target specific in this RPM.  I will add in the
Opteron patches and some other tweaks in short order, and get an updated
source RPM.

  To build this RPM into a set of binary RPMs, do the following as root

	rpmbuild --rebuild NCBI-2.2.7-1.src.rpm

If you want to build for a specific target processor, use the --target
option, as in
	rpmbuild --rebuild --target i686 NCBI-2.2.7-1.src.rpm

Please let me know if you find any problems.  It has rebuilt fine on a
number of machines thus far.  I would like to see what happens on
non-native RPM architectures (OS-X, and other Unices).
