ifup-aliases does not handle correctly linuxconf-generated aliases. (wrong version of initscripts ?)

Description of problem:
/etc/sysconfig/network-script/ifup-aliases yelds an error like this:
error in ifcfg-lo:0: didn't specify device or ipaddr
when reading an alias generated by linuxconf.
the problem should have been resolved in initscripts-6.67-1 (according to CVS)
but, apparently, the initscripts-6.67-1.rpm was built from initscripts-6.67.
In fact I checked initscripts-6.67-1.src.rpm and it contains the scripts from 6.67.
So it seems that the "bug" is actually due to an error in the building of the rpm.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
create an alias for an interface via linuxconf (e.g. lo:0)
restart network (or just call ifup l0)
Actual Results: error in ifcfg-lo:0: didn't specify device or ipaddr
I wrote enough information on the description, I guess.
At this point, if it's not fixed in current sources, it probably won't be fixed.
It appears to be fixed in 6.75 and later.
