I don't know which version of TeX Live Fedora 13 is stipping, so
providing a bit more information would be useful, or do you expect
us to check what Fedora is actually checking?

Your test run *without* any problem on both Debian/TeX Live which is
TeX Live 2009, as well as TeX Live 2010, so I don't see any further need of
action here.

If Fedora 13 ships TL 2008 or TL2007 or whatever then you have the following
- upgrade your Operating System
- install TeX Live 2010 locally
- don't use mathspec
