EPEL6 spec file
I'd like med EPEL6 for some other packages, but it needs some changes.
I don't know if you'd prefer a single spec file or not, but I'll attach a
new spec and a couple of autotools patches that I've been using.

swig configure patch for EPEL6
Ah cool, I just tried building it this afternoon  and got 
checking for H5open in -lhdf5... no
configure: error: either use HDF5HOME env. var. or --with-hdf5=<path>
Did you also hit that issue? readelf -Ws on the libhdf5 from hdf5-1.8.5.patch1-9.el6 shows that it definitely has the H5open symbol, so I'm not sure what's wrong there...

It needs BR zlib-devel. That must be implicit in later dists.
(I have packages for gmsh and engrid, which I'm aiming towards, under
http://copr.fedoraproject.org/coprs/loveshack/livhpc, but I realize they
involve more recent versions of a couple of things than are in EPEL6, bother.)
Apologies for the duplicate bugs -- I don't know how that happened -- and
thanks for the other things I see you pushed.
Ah makes sense!
So on my part for gmsh, I still need to take care of:
mathex: package change request filed
tcl-togl: package change request filed
netgen-mesher: needs tcl-togl
Which versions are problematic? It is only for engrid or also for gmsh?
By the way, if you'd like to comaintain the packages, you would be very welcome to do so. I really seldom use EL, so I don't actually test any of these packages there. If it is a matter of getting sponsored, I'm sure that can be take care of quickly, considering all the packaging you've already done.

I think both, though I'll have to check in a vanilla mock. gmsh graphics needs a more recent fltk than in EPEL. A simple version update clashed with some other packages, but I have an SCL version to try, or it could be packaged as "fltk13", presumably.
