Well...rpm, kudzu and most of the rest were static linked to popt in Fedora
7. This changed with Fedora 8 the first time. If you really want to try to
reproduce this, go and rebuild all packages depending on popt first. Or try
Fedora 8 which doesn't link statically to popt any longer for rpm and kudzu
- at least it shouldn't.
