Description of problem:
In RH9 (and 8 as well I believe), the libuserquota python module does not
compile properly.  I know very little about C, but my suspicion is that the
version of the quota package changed and broke the python module.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. edit SPEC file to include --enable-quotas
2. rpmbuild --rebuild 
3. Check that libuserquota was not built.

Attempting to compile manually doesn't work either.   

Actual Results:  Library for python was not build.  Hacking the makefiles by
hand caused the build of the quota library to still fail.

Expected Results:  Successful compilation

First, the argument is --enable-quota.

Other than that, the configure mechanism didn't work at all
and there were several compilation errors that will be fixed
in the next libuser release.

As you can see, the quota code has probably never been used
in practice, so its usage in production is dicouraged at this time.

Should be fixed in libuser-0.51.10-1, when it hits rawhide.
