BUT - and there's always a but - there are no nice

I've done a source build of X before on a "roll-yer-own" distro, but never
tried to upgrade X under RH before.
What is the best/easiest way to do this without breaking anything?
The _best_ way is to get hold of the .spec file from the 4.0.1 source RPM,
tweak it as necessary for anything that might have changed in 4.0.3 then
use that, along with tarballs of the 4.0.3 source and the rpm command to
build your own RPMs, which you then upgrade to via the normal methods.
The _easiest_ way is to wait for someone else (eg RedHat themselves) to
make those RPMs for you. :)
