    RHEL 5: Don't use 'truncate' command in tests.

    Use 'guestfish sparse' instead, which is roughly equivalent.
    See commit ef1514a
    and commit 39df80d.
    (cherry picked from commit 18c93ac)

    EPEL 5: ruby: Use old rake/rdoctask and rake/gempackagetask.

    The 'begin ... rescue' code is supposed to ensure these old packages
    are required, but for reasons not understood this doesn't work on
    ancient Ruby 1.8.5 in RHEL 5.

    EPEL 5: Remove Linux capabilities.

    Linux file capabilities are not supported in RHEL 5, and the
    cap_*_file functions don't exist in the libcap library (although
    confusingly they are in the header file).

    EPEL 5: podwrapper: Don't use Pod::Man.

    This unfortunately means the man pages are generated as plain text.
    However that's necessary as Pod::Man does not have an output_string

    EPEL 5: podwrapper: Remove HTML output.

    It requires perl Pod::Simple::XHTML which did not exist in

    EPEL 5: Add 1 second pause after unmounting any filesystem.

    This fixes the test-charset-fidelity test case.  A simpler example
    which fails without this is:
      guestfish <<EOF
      sparse test1.img 1G
      part-disk /dev/sda mbr
      mkfs msdos /dev/sda1
      mount /dev/sda1 /
      touch /foo
      umount /
      mkfs ntfs /dev/sda1
      # Next command would fail:
      mount /dev/sda1 /
      vfs-type /dev/sda1 -x

    EPEL 5: Add mkisofs to package list.

    This package contains the 'isoinfo' program which is required
    to implement the corresponding API and for tests to pass.
