The flaw will be in -lrpmmisc, not in -lrpmio, is my guess.

And its likely my portability brain fart somehow if reproducible.

Doing
	cd misc
	cvs diff -D "2 months ago"
will show all my changes.

There's not a whole lot different in misc/* afaict.

I have seen some issues trying to sort out the SELinux textrel
issue by attempting "ld -pie ..." linkage. But I abandoned those
efforts, none of those changes are on HEAD.

Note that its *very* easy to get tricked by -lrpmisc because
some of the make dependencies are not included. Adding
those dependencies through AutoFu would be fairly difficult,
what is there is OK for most usage cases even if a developer
can get occaisionally tricked.
