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 
recommend FC5.

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.
