Rawhide Powertools issue with (and fix for) GNATS 3.113 ...

In your compiled version, it expects a number of config files (e.g.,
./gnats-adm/gnatsd.conf) and the queue directory (./gnats-queue) to be in

But the GNATS DB support RPM (gnats-db-3.113-2.i386.rpm), puts them in
/usr/share/gnats/gnats-db instead.  You may wish to change the above to
match GNATS DB.

A quick fix to this is, of course, to use a symbolic link:
   ln -s /usr/share/gnats/gnats-db /var/lib/gnats

Just FYI.  Cannot wait for RedHat and Powertools 6.2 (and don't call it 7.0
just because Mandrake jumped to 7.0, got I hate that! ;-).

OK. Check out the 3.113-3 release whenever rawhide gets updated. It's fixed.
