Well, part of my question got answered yesterday.  Some new files appeared 
in the Fedora 7 and Fedora 8 repositories: ax25-apps-0.0.6-2.fc8.i386.rpm 
and ax25-tools-0.0.8-2.fc8.i386.rpm.  The libax25-0.0.11-3.fc7.i386.rpm 
file appeared on 19 February.  Whoever it was in the Fedora Project who 
did this, I thank you.
