Sure I can do all of the above: its several days work to get there and is essentially
the same as switching my development platform to a different linux distro.

My build starts with a cvs checkout, and invokes ./devtool with a set of options
so that I can bore into a reproducible problem with "make -C tests test".

I can't do distro-of-the-day linux development. If there is a "regression" in rpm-5.4.15 as you
claim, it will be all platforms, not just PLD.
