Re: svn commit: rev 472 - trunk/packages/rpm

Hmm, without that "> /dev/null" the "end-user" package installer *does*
see it, that's why I put that in there, so they wouldn't have to see it;
it happens at install time, not at compile or package generation time.
It doesn't really matter to me except that it looks messy.

Let me know if there is a better way.
