I wasn't sure what to do about this.

The various packaging maintainers have long appeared to take the
attitude that it's appropriate to fix problems by adding kludges to the
packaging materials rather than by submitting patches to the core
Subversion code. Consequently, we get into the position where certain
fringe functionality will work better (or perhaps just differently) if
you install an RPM instead of building from source.

r8085/r8104 is just another example of this attitude. I have a hard
time voting for what I consider the wrong solution to a problem, even
though it's consistent with the kind of things which have already gone
into the packaging directory.
