I am using "-kernel" in the BuildRequires to remove the errornous kernel

Ciao, Marcus

Thanks for the tip. For future reference to folks searching I originally
had a bunch of
BuildRequires: foo
BuildRequires: bar
lines, with this and a final one of BuildRequres: -kernel it would fail
to build because MAKEDEV could not be found. Collapsing all the
BuildRequires into a single clause in the specfile seems to have enabled
it to compile ok again.
The joy of peeking at gphotofs' specfile :)

I spoke slightly too soon. The fedora8 build is now ok but the F7 one
dies with the old no MAKEDEV error. Though I notice you have F7 rpms for
gphotofs :(
