Hi Thorsten and Hans, thanks for the responses.

Looking at packaging the RPM: the main thing that sticks out is that 
there are two different source tarballs for 32 and 64 bit systems. The 
only difference between the two tarballs is the hybrid binary driver 
itself - the rest of the source is the same. What would be the 
recommended way to proceed with this type of scenario?

I was wondering whether to include both binary files (they would need 
renaming to distinguish which is which) within a new single tarball and 
then use a patch for the Makefile to ensure it uses the correct binary 
driver. This seems a bit "hacky" so I wondered if anyone could think of 
a more elegant solution?
