Patch for ntl.spec to add gf2x support

Description of problem:
I am working on a package that uses NTL.  Its documentation says that NTL should be built with gf2x support to get acceptable speed.  I have submitted the gf2x package, and it has been approved.  It is now available in F18 and F19, and is in updates-testing for F17.  Would you please apply the attached patch to build with gf2x?  The patch also fixes a problem with the current package: there are no %post and %postun scripts that call ldconfig.

If you would like a comaintainer for ntl, I'm willing.

sure no problem, thanks for catching the scriptlet error.

(and feel free to apply for acl's and commit it if that interests you at all...)

otherwise, I'll probably have a chance to look at this by the weekend.
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2012-08-16 14:41:19 EDT
meh applying patch now, and would still be happy for another comaintainer.
