I gave it a quick try, and it seems basically ok for me. Point 2 is 
still needs fixing as per my patch. Having said that, maybe the 
samplecfg stuff should be run at rpm build time - the result will be 
fixed for a given
build. This means the standard rpm approach of marking the fpc.cfg file 
as a configuration file (and thus potentially preserved across upgrades) 
can be taken. It would also loose the output from the postinstall rpm 
script (I think the rpm standard says these scripts should have no output.)

Is the idea that the fpc.spec file then becomes the standard for fpc?
