In FC4 xscreensaver got split up into three packages:

xscreensaver-base, xscreensaver-extras, and xscreensaver-gl-extras.

By default only xscreensaver-base gets installed, which only comes with blank
screen.   If you want more screensavers install either the xscreensaver-extras
or xscreensaver-gl-extras package (or both).

I can see xscreensaver-base in core, but no xscreensaver-extras or
xscreensaver-gl-extras in extras.  This means we need to run rpmbuild on
the source rpm to get the missing two, right?
