      Description

      I'm not sure about this binary from cfengine, as package "rpmdevtools"(subpackage of rpm, upstream) has already contained it(rpmdev-vercmp), duplicating the files, especially an essential component of the base os is not a good idea for RPM based systems like Fedora/RHEL. I strongly encourage adding a check or option for packager to choose if this program could be replaced by rpmdevtools.

      I've taken cfengine in Fedora for half a year, and planning to push 3.6 to Fedora 21, this is a tiny issue I've found so far.
