Description of problem:
There are some components of the fetchmail package missing in Fedora
Core 1, a.o. fetchmailconf. I've downloaded the latest version
directly from ESR's page


and the rebuild worked fine without any complains. The resulting RPM
has some more files in it, including /usr/bin/fetchmailconf, a very
nice tool to configure fetchmail. 'Think it should be there for
everyone to use freely.

I've a mailserver with postfix+spamassassin+dovecot and after
downloading pop mail from another mailserver via fetchmail my
evolution mail-client did not recognize anymore the (mbox) format of
my IMAP account. After creating a new .fetchmailrc with fetchmailconf
(on a separate machine) and upgrading to fetchmail-6.2.5-1 everything
works fine 'n smoothly.

Version-Release number of selected component:

How reproducible:

According to the changelog it was removed because tkinter was no
longer available, however tkinter does exist in the FC1 packages. 
(tkinter-2.2.3-7 in FC1 and 2.3.3-2.1 in devel)

The fetchmailconf binary is a very useful part of the fetchmail
package and its re-inclusion is requested.

Any chance of this going in for FC3?
