How about we simply apply the patch that Panu suggested in the current
version so the conflict is gone (i.e. identical md5sum between RHEL
rpm-build and EPEL rpmdevtools), and wait to push this new version
until after 5.3.  Is there some compelling reason to push this
earlier? What else has changed?

I realize that patching so our md5sum becomes identical is full of
fail, but it *is* an immediate term option.
