Sorry for the late reply. I've been playing with my mail server. I tried to 
reply sooner here it is:

I already have spec files and do builds for mandrake. Caldera will
probably not compile it correctly I have tried multiple times.

these spec files should work on redhat, suse, caldera (caldera has compiler 
problems or I would have made them sooner), and mandrake. I'm already on 
sourceforge for sword. I can post the srpms and any one interested can 
compile away. I would also be glad to answer any questions. 

I also do bibletime rpm's for mandrake with sword staticly compiled in. No 
need for sword to be installed. It make all the support files needed. If 
others whould like to know how and like the srpms for this let me know.
