Ok. check-rpms-3.0.1-2.noarch.rpm is available from
The defaults are now:
$DEFFTPSERVER = "mirror3.cs.wisc.edu";
$DEFFTPUPDATES = "pub/mirrors/linux/download.fedoralegacy.org/redhat/$DISTROVERSION/updates";
$DEFFTPSERVER = "fedora.redhat.com";
$DEFFTPUPDATES = "pub/fedora/linux/updates/$DISTROVERSION/en/os";
$DEFFTPSERVER = "ftp.suse.com";
$DEFFTPUPDATES = "pub/suse/i386/update/$DISTROVERSION/rpm";
With those settings "check-rpms" should work out-of-the box.
