Found newer tarballs here: http://wraptastic.org/pub/rpm-4.4.x/
I edited the portfile to use 4.4.6, changed the checksum, but, of
course, the patches don't apply. I'm not sure who the maintainer
is. I see that the Portfile itself indicates "n3npq at mac.com", but
that the last source control tag is "blair at macports.org". I've
emailed n3npq. Should I email blair as well?
