Thanks for the suggestions. Just adding here that I am working on the RHEL 6 profiles of SSG and whenever I try to compile after changes, make returns errors. I am keeping an eye on the git repo for the commits. I'm not sure what is the difference between in-source and out-of-source builds. Any help?
