good. rpm-5.1.6 with fixes for internal lua (or otherwise not assuming
those 2 defines for linux) is likely pending.

I'd *love* to provide a guarantee of interoperability w rpm4, but I  
do that unilaterally when there is a active fork in progress.

E.g., gdb is segfaulting on me daily switching between rpm5 <-> rpm4,
and there is nothing whatsoever I can do @rpm5.org about the issue,  
how gdb is
built in Fedora 10 plain and simply ain't my problem mon.

Personally, I think its Really Bad Craziness to link -lrpm into gdb.  
But that's just my POV.
