F-10 will ship with 6.2-3.  I'll be pushing a 6.3-4 (or later) 0-day
update as well:

* Tue Nov 11 2008 - Orion Poplawski <orion at cora.nwra.com> - 6.2-4
- Add note to README about localhost line in /etc/hosts
- Cleanup setting.sh some, no more MAN stuff
- Add conditional build support for EL
- Use system db_* utils in bdb_checkpoint script

I've got the src.rpm here:


This should build on EL-5, F-9, and F-8 with sun java 1.6.0 installed.

These rpms are geared for minimal NFS type installs.  install_* scripts
should work, though install_execd should not be needed for standard
"default" installs.  Bugs to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/.

update script worked for me, but it installed a new (unneeded) qmaster
init script, which I should fix.
