My apologies - I'm not thinking this through.  I've done 101, but should
probably do 102 now.

Anyway, libofx requires opensp-devel.  Opensp-devel requires opensp.  Opensp
requires glibc 2.4.  Apparently, that is why I need it, at least installing
from the opensp rpms.  Running from rpmrebuild as you suggest above
completes, but now I get many library conflicts with openjade when I try to
install the RPM.  The openjade package is needed by quite a few things on my
system, including the installed openofx 0.7.
