[JDEV] jabber RPMs

I just uploaded the following RPMs to
They're built for SuSE 6.2 but should compile on any other SuSE oob.
Since I used the RedHat-style of building minimal changes to
installation paths should give perfect RedHat-RPMs.
While building them I noticed that
a.) some packages don't provide a DESTDIR-variable to redirect the
installation into some temporary directory. I therefore simply set
prefix to that dir on 'make install'-time.
b.) the main jabber-transport-package is quite inconsistent in using
the automake-given variables. Where needed for my purposes I replaced
$(prefix)/var by $(localstatedir) and the like. Unfortunately I don't
have the time to finish that.
The jabber-transport-package is incomplete in that it doesn't generate
a new unprivileged user to run the jserver as. So jserver will *run as
root by default*. If anyone is interested, I have a changed script
running locally that uses a jabber user to run the server as.
Also there're no useful package descriptions yet.
Hope I helped a bit. Stay up with the great work!
