Now that we have a bit more activity on this list and the repo, I thought I'd repost my request from earlier this year.

What I meant to ask was if clisp should be rebuilt to depend on /usr/lib/libsigsegv.so.2 (libsigsegv-2.7-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm) instead of /usr/lib/libsigsegv.so.0 (libsigsegv-2.4-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm) to avoid this problem.
