You need to install the epiphany-devel package to compile
epiphany-extensions. And apparently you'll have to compile
epiphany-extensions with --prefix=/usr. That's totally evil and could
confuse RPM in the future. Sucky. (At the very least, remember to "make
uninstall" from the epiphany-extensions source code directory before you
install whatever epiphany-extensions RPMs you may find in the future.)

I'm somewhat surprised FC3 doesn't come with an epiphany-extensions
package. All the other distros are doing it....
