I have an F7 box here, so I'll rebuild and test later.

I should really be using mach/mock, but I'm a bit disorganised ATM :)

Also I'm still investigating the legality of building unrar against GPL
sources. I think this is not a question of whether the author gives his
permission to distribute freeware, but more a question of whether GPL
software can be linked to proprietary software. If it is actually linked
rather than a separate binary, then I don't think it's legal, and even
then I'm not sure if they can be distributed in an RPM package together.

Just to be safe, I'm going to disable unrar support and rebuild.
