What a tempest in a teapot. Folks, time for a reality check.

I dislike bundled copies at least as much as the next guy, but:
- Replacing X with Y broke Z, yes Y gets blamed first
- Sometimes life's more complicated than that
- Short-term, a working test-suite is FAR MORE VALUABLE to me than ideological "bundling is not nice"

We're talking about something bundled  20 years ago and on my watch, I don't recall seeing a single bug beyond portability tweaks reported on the bundled FTS copy. And I sure as hell dont have time to listen up this OH MY GOD HOUSE IS ON FIRE yack-yack on what is from rpm functional point a total non-issue. 

I'll revisit the issue when its time.
