Beware! I had pulled down the src rpm from:
and was led to believe that gcc3 was required to build the VM.
This basically led to 4 days of pain and frustration until someone else
pointed out "gcc-3.x bad, gcc-2.96 good" (Thanks Ned!).
I have a working VM built from SF sources.
Also, be careful, if you start with the 3.0 vm/image and try to
apply all the updates, it just blows up somepoint after warning you
that a new VM is required...
