I have this ready to go. However, upstream added building shared libraries but unfortunately has chosen to use "-release" instead of "-version-info" to version the libraries. This makes .so's of the name libname-%version.so, and so would require rebuilding everything with each minor release. I've sent them a message suggesting they use the -version-info method resulting in standard sonames instead. Holding off until I hear back from them.
Upstream is on board with fixing this so I'm going to skip this release and wait for the next.
