The Mandriva spec file should work if you are prepared to use the 
compatibility macros for Fedora/RedHat:

(linked from: 

The package builds on RHEL4 with these macros, I haven't got it building under 
RHEL5 (due to some compiler or glibc issue I haven't had enough time for, this 
is also preventing me from updating to 1.2 on cooker), 
but not due to the macros ...

If you have problems, let me know, I am prepared to look at integrating any 
changes required for Fedora as long as they don't break it on Mandriva (so, 
some thing may have to be put in conditionals).
