Putting source into RPM's is a convenience for those developers who may
wish to create such a package. Some developers don't use RPM based
systems so don't concern themselves too much with packaging source

The preferred method on Most Unix/Linux based systems is to simply pull
out the source from the CVS (revision control repository) and build it
directly. It really is not too difficult and works on more than just
Redhat(or any RPM based distro)

The commands you may wish to try on Redhat/Fedora are:

cvs -z3 -d:pserver:address@hidden:/sources/gnubg co
cd gnubg

then do (as root):

make install

If you have a Duo or Quad processor system you can get better
performance by changing the ./configure line above to:

./configure --enable-threads

I recommend if you have a chance to try the process above and see if you
can pull out the source by yourself and build a working program, and
install it.
