Hey, Scott. It wouldn't be possible for the EL5 package, since libbsd isn't
shown as availble for that platform:

Technically, it would be doable for EL6... but I already have two branches
of the spec file (based on whether it's built for a SystemV vs. a systemd
environment) so I'd rather keep it branched that way for now.

The good news is that I should be able to try it with the systemd branch,
because that applies to Fedora 17+, all of which have active releases of

I'll tinker around with that now and see what I get. I've never built any
packages against libbsd before -- am I going to need to reference it
throughout the spec file wherever needed? Or is there a compile time option
(like --include=libbsd) already in opendkim?
