The "RPM world" knows this but it is usually quite painless to `rpmbuild
--rebuild` the .src.rpm on the target host (and at least /me does it
since I have sth. like different versions on i386 and x86_64 around).

And since the OLSTD don't need external libs (except the standard  C lib
of course;-), it should work on FC?,F7, RHEL?, CentOS*,WhiteBoxLinux*
for all architectures - perhaps/probably even on SuSE and other RPM
based distros.
