Arrow Using source rpm question....


Hello everyone.


Well, I downloaded a source rpm that I need to install on my RH 8.0 system.
The source rpm is:

cyrus-sasl-2.1.15.src.rpm


The problem is that when I go to build the RPM, it fails on a dependency for:


db3-devel.


Well, the flipside is that, RH 8.0 comes with db4 and db4-devel


So my question is, is there a way to customize this source rpm to use the db4-devel requirement through editing a spec file?
