I didn't spent much time on the things Georgi already did.  I did some
cleanups like getting a conformance with CONVENTIONS, studying possible
configuration options, etc.

The list of currently failing packages is (the same as Georgi has
posted):

cpio
elfutils-libelf
flex
glibc
kernel
libtool
mdadm
perl
shadow-utils
util-linux
vim

Are we planning to update anything from this list?  glibc should be
fixed for 3.0, so we'll need to take care of them despite future
updates.

Thanks,
