There are several problems with tripwire that I have seen mentioned in
the last 2 years. We quit using tripwire due to the 64 bit problem and
just went with rpm -V and some sha256 scripts to do files not loaded
in rpm database.

1) Selinux/xattr aware
2) 64 bit compilation/working
3) Prelink aware
4) Licensing problems with later versions?
