I just completed a (completely untested at the moment) build of with 1.8.7 patches.  We'll do some testing here 
first, but if it looks like it works well, we'll put a pointer to the 
RPM.  Or if you want to risk your dog biting you while your servers 
possibly exploding, strafing your data center with untold numbers of 
bits, and a diskful or two of lost metadata, I'd be happy to make it 
available before our testing (we don't care if we lose data on our test 
rigs) begins.
