[httperf] SuSE RPM and Spec File

Because I am a giant nerd and am trying to avoid showering and cleaning
my apartment (kidding, I swear) I wrote a RPM spec file for building a
httperf RPM to install on SuSE or (probably) Redhat/Fedora or any other
distro that uses RPM.

This can be used by placing the httperf-0.8.tar.gz source file at
/usr/src/packages/SOURCES and running rpmbuild -ba --target=i686

It is listed below:

Summary: HTTP Server performance metrics tool
Name: httperf
Version: 0.8
Release: 1
License: GPL
Group: Utilities
Prefix: /usr/local
Source: ftp://ftp.hpl.hp.com/pub/httperf/httperf-0.8.tar.gz
URL: http://www.hpl.hp.com/research/linux/httperf/
Packager: Ted Bullock <tbullock at canada.com>
Provides: httperf

Requires: openssl

httperf is a tool for measuring web server performance. It provides a
flexible facility for generating various HTTP workloads and for
measuring server performance. The focus of httperf is not on
implementing one particular benchmark but on providing a robust,
high-performance tool that facilitates the construction of both micro-
and macro-level benchmarks. The three distinguishing characteristics of
httperf are its robustness, which includes the ability to generate and
sustain server overload, support for the HTTP/1.1 and SSL protocols, and
its extensibility to new workload generators and performance measurements.
