You could remove elinks from the dependency and comment out the
pyOpenSSL-elinks.patch lines. Later versions of Fedora don't come with lynx,
hence the elinks patch.
The python-abi dependency could also be removed. On Fedora, python-abi is
set to the Python version (e.g. 2.3 or 2.4, it's to prevent a RPM built
against Python 2.4 being installed on a Python 2.3 based Fedora, etc)

I'm currently maintaining 6 RPM yum repositories for i386 and x86-64 Fedora
Core 3, 4 and 5. The RPMs are specifically targeted for that particular
Fedora version and should cleanly install (with RPMs dependencies from
Fedora Core and Fedora Extras). If you decide on going for Fedora, I would
I don't have the hardware or hard disk space to do the same for multiple
versions of SUSE.

Sorry I don't have SUSE installed anywhere at the moment, so I'm not able to
reproduce the problems. Someone else on this list had previously built the
compat-AccessGrid RPMs on x86-64 SUSE, so I assumed it would be pretty
smooth to build on SUSE.
