Here they are. (built on CentOS 5 x86_64 with all latest updates)

Note: I had to run `python -c 'import setuptools; execfile("setup.py")'
bdist_egg`, because pycrypto's setup.py imports distutils and it does not
knows about bdist_egg.

Personally I had this issue, but I've fixed it by making rpm and installing
pycrypto system-wide so tahoe does not tries to build it again. spec is
attached as well (build with 'rpmbuild -bb python-crypto.spec; use at your
own risk, it's not tested).
Also, I'm working on spec files which should allow to build rpms for
tahoe-laft and its dependencies on any redhat-based distro. And I have one
related question about it: is there any way to stop tahoe build downloading
packages and fail instead - this will help packaging and tracking
dependencies (especially deep dependencies) a lot.
