Yep, you need elfutils to see ELF dependencies with rpmdeps.

Really? Hmmm, then something is not correctly implemented with robust  

Yes, robust mutexes are not in 2.6.17 kernels, but I would have  
thought that
glibc-2.6 would have not returned EOWNERDEAD if robust mutexes were
not supported.

FWIW, PLD has the same problem, kernel-2.6.17, but glibc-2.6, and also
has robust mutex problems.

fcntl db lockingl will work fine. Ripping robust mutexes is really  
easy too.
