As part of preparing for dealing with the incompatibilities
that are going to be introduced by the "official" release
of rpm-4.6.0 from rpm.org, I've started preparing my
own rpm-4.6.0 packaging.

I'm using a "package bundle" for several reasons, not
the least of which is that I want to be able to install/erase
all rpm-4.6.0 packaging as easily as possible.

Attached is a rpm-bundle.spec file that accomplishes
a "package bundle" for rpm-4.6.0. There's a bit
more to do (dealing with rpm-4.6.0 incompatibilities)
before sending the same "package bundle" example
to <rpm-list@rpm.org>, but I don't believe there's anything
in the attached rpm-bundle.spec that cannot be used right
now, certainly illustrating what is needed to produce a
"package bundle" is harmless.

Note that interoperability between rpm.org <-> rpm5.org
does not exist yet, waiting on the "official" rpm-4.6.0 release.

Currently, there are different Berekeley DB versions in use, different
fDB_HASH <-> DB_BTREE formats, and different /usr/lib/rpm/macros
configuration that are most certainly incompatible atm.
