Im not sure what you mean by adding rss to to the database. Do you
mean Koha should be able to output RSS, if so, it already can.

I can't quite figure out how to enable the RSS feeds, which would be very
nice. I have read the README, but I'm still unclear how to set the
lastAcquired.conf file.

RSS in Koha current releases is REALLY rough at this stage. It's
unfortunate, because there's a significant technical barrier to getting
them working. These are some of the steps you have to take:

The other developers can correct any inaccuracies in this description--it's been a while since I tried to mess with Koha's RSS. But the point still
stands: Not very useful yet!

Yep thats one way of doing it.
The other way is to create an rss (or indeed any xml) template for the page you want. For example if you had an rss template for the search results screen you could have an rss feed of the results of any search, including the last acquired one.

Or you can do what the current NPL koha has done.
(this is only in dev_week at the moment as far as I know)

I think the having a set of templates for the pages you want is probably the best way to go, if someone who knew the syntax wanted to have a go at that, it could be added really fast.
