Since I updated rcs to 5.10 in my OS i keep on getting these messages in configure:

rcs 5.10.0 detected. rcs is too old, upgrade to version 5.7 or higher. Foswiki will probably not work with this RCS setup. Either correct the setup, or switch to RcsLite. To enable RCSLite you need to change the setting of {Store}{Implementation} to 'Foswiki::Store::RcsLite'.

Confirmed: the way versions are compared is broken. It compares 5.10 against 5.7 numerically and then 5.10 is lower than 5.7. Please try attached hotfix. There might be more code that does it wrong ... checking.

thankx for the hotfix, it works. Make me know if you need any additional tests/info

I think that nailed it. Just some unit tests that still need fixing ...
