In general, you shouldn't do that. Check for the feature you want to use
instead [1]. There are at least three different branches of Sugar
("upstream", OLPC and AC). A feature might be present in version X for
the OLPC or AC branch, but only in version X+1 for the upstream branch.
The same applies to OS builds (and remember that not just Fedora ships
Sugar - so please don't rely on rpm or yum being available).
