RPM Spec file bugs

Follow up email on the argus-client issues...

I had to make some changes to radium/Makefile.in.  Right side is the 
modified side.  I just copied this code straight out of ratop's 
Makefile.in so forgive me if I messed some convention up.  In my 
defense, it worked. :-)
< PROGS = radium
 > PROGS = @INSTALL_BIN@/radium
< radium: radium.o $(LIB)
 > @INSTALL_BIN@/radium: radium.o $(LIB)
<               (mkdir -p $(DESTDIR)$(SBINDIR); chmod 755 
<       $(INSTALL) radium $(DESTDIR)$(SBINDIR)
 >               (mkdir -p $(DESTDIR)$(BINDIR); chmod 755 

I also deleted the lines about ramatrix and raxml out of the 
argus-client spec file since there is no code for them I could find in 
the package.
