The existing spec file would create swish-e, swish-e-devel,
swish-e-perl-api and swish-e-perl packages.

Its included in the swish-e source tarballs and its in CVS.  There's a
directory named rpm with a and an icon for graphical
package managers.  configure generates a rpm/swish-e.spec file.  Only
the swish-e version number is replaced in the file.

OK, that's good to know.  On RH9-FC3 the automatic dependency script
created dependencies on quite a few packages not provided at the time.
