"Bastille may be a bit more work than I'm looking for right now, but I will look into it."
That would be terrific. This is how to do a minor tweak to install it on 9.2 - maybe this will help simplify things for you:

I would love to see Quantum GIS (http://qgis.sf.net/) in an RPM format. The current versions is 0.2, and I have yet to find an RPM for Mandrake (there is a SuSE one I believe). The use for this is probably towards academians or people seriously using GIS in another field.
Another application on the same lines is GRASS (http://grass.baylor.edu//), a complete GIS package first developed by the US Military. It is GPL'ed and has an installer (.sh script), but still, an RPM would be nice. There is one for the stable version (5.0) but the current development version is 5.7 if I recall well. The interesting thing is, GRASS is text-based, while QGIS (see above) has created a plugin to introduce a GUI to the application that is much more professional and efficient.
These are the RPMs I am looking for around the internet and could not find yet. If you would be so kind to create them, I would be grateful.

(Unless I'm mistaken about what tyme's goals are; does he want to make RPMs specifically for Mandrake even if working ones exist?)

my goal is to make RPMs for Mandrake 10.0 OE of programs that do not currently have an RPM which works in Mandrake 10.0 OE (or not an up-to-date one, for that matter).

Would it actually be possible to get other rpms to work with that? Especially if you wanted to use it as your sole X server - you would need all packages to be X agnostic.

Gaim and Jamboree are personal choices of mine. The gaim version in 10.0 OE is a tad out-of-date and the new version as a lot of good updates. Jamboree just looks good, and seems like an alternative to Rhythmbox (which is still problematic - atleast for me).
Qchem and myself are going to first see how building gaim goes, and if we can handle that we're going to move on to the rest.
