The solution for building the 1.30.10 tarball directly via rpmbuild on
FC9 is to remove the "-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2" option from the RPM default
macros. This is accomplished by editing the
"/usr/lib/rpm/redhat/macros", and modifying the "%__global_cflags"

After that, it compiles and builds the RPMs cleanly.  I didn't have any
other problems with objects not being installed properly - after
installing the newly-built RPM on my servers and clients (all FC9), i
had an AFR cluster set up and functional in about 15 minutes, without
jumping through any additional hoops in this regard.

The only odd thing that i did was to install the FC9 Fuse packages
via Yum first, then i "upgraded" to the Gluster fuse packages (also
built by me on FC9) after the fact.  This seemed to work quite
nicely. :)
