Great thanks !   .. So I took mpss_gold_update_3-2.1.6720-19 source,
plus the master branch by doing a

The "configure" seems to run fine but "make rpms" wants two non-exist
files as the following:

RPM build errors:
    File not found:
    File not found:

Do I have any workaround ? I would prefer the master branch, instead
of going back to 2.4, if all possible.
