It looks like I am pushing the boundaries a bit here.
I am trying to build binary x86_64 rpms from the source
rpms available in the Mandrake contrib area for sword 1.5.7a,
gnomesword 2.1.1, and bibletime 1.4.1-3.
After jumping through a few hoops I managed to produce a

For Bibletime, I had to add "/usr/lib64", as a directory
in which to search for libsword, to the main configure file,
and re-create the tar.bz2 file. After that bibletime was
I imagine that by playing around with the gnomesword
sources I could make it work, but I would like to do it in
