I wouldn't really say that. They do use macros which Mandriva has been using 
for years, and which RH packagers still write custom scripts for ... but I 
have compatibility macros (see below) which are the ones I am using for 
building on our RHEL3/RHEL4 boxen. The SRPMS may now even work on RHEL2.1 
(I'll check later this week).

You should have got a warning about the missing macros, which should have 
taken you here: http://qa.mandriva.com/twiki/bin/view/Main/BackPorting, grab 
the macros.mdk4rh file and read the instructions in it.

(I have another macro file which supports rebuilding perl SRPMS from Mandriva 
on RedHat, but it will require one additional script from the Mandriva 
package spec-helper ... I'm not sure if others will be interested in it).

You can try these, though they are a few days old:


I'll try and build some 2.3.11's this week.
