Added the directory. Not really nice, oh well. Should be in Rawhide.
The following problematic directories are still alive:
[owned by ethereal-0.9.8-5, parted-1.6.3-11, python-2.2.2-22]
[owned by python-2.2.2-22]
Perhaps an explicit 'Requires: python' should be added.
Requires: python would be good indeed.
Fixed in CVS, and versions 0.5.1-9 and later.
