Well, I'm not that familiar with rpm, and as of now I'm totally confused
with the file /usr/lib/rpm/rpmpopt- (is this the one I need?)
WHAT (I mean, _which_ "one") should I add, and where?  BTW, the file in
question is commented as "shoud not be modified", and there's a note that
"local changes should go to /etc/popd, not here"; well, there's an empty
directory /etc/popd.d, no other files there and no idea how to deal with
all these mess.

Anyway, in such a situation, may be it could be wiser to patch Owl build
scripts instead of trying to reconfigure rpm?   Depending on a feature
which is known to disappear doesn't look a good idea to me.
