I noticed they discuss:
http://en.opensuse.org/Build_Service/cross_distribution_package_how_to

For reference:
http://www.doe.carleton.ca/~kmedri/research/harminv.spec.Fedora
http://www.doe.carleton.ca/~kmedri/research/libctl.spec.Fedora
http://www.doe.carleton.ca/~kmedri/research/meep.spec.SuSE
http://www.doe.carleton.ca/~kmedri/research/h5utils.spec.SuSE

Using:
http://www.doe.carleton.ca/~kmedri/research/meep.spec

I was able to build:
http://www.doe.carleton.ca/~kmedri/research/meep-1.0.3-1.x86_64.rpm
http://www.doe.carleton.ca/~kmedri/research/meep-debuginfo-1.0.3-1.x86_64.rp
m

I will continue working on this and appreciate input from anyone who can
help.

Someone has to package all this stuff.

* harminv and libctl are available in Fedora
* h5utils and meep are packaged for SuSE

The first two should be trivial to port unless they require something
else that is not in CentOS / RPMForge. The latter two are trickier,
because SuSE packaging guidelines are quite different from EL.

I might have time to review/commit the SPECs if someone comes up with
something, but otherwise I personally have no spare time / interest in
packaging and maintaining these utilities.

Maybe someone else have time to have fun with this.
