I'd need to know all the versions of RPM involved, as well as some
details to determine the root cause.

But I can hazard a guess:

I believe you are packaging a binary library that has been prelinked on the
failing system.

Try disabling file digest checking while installing:  --nofdigests is the
current disabler, the previous disabler was --md5sums or something.

(this is from 5+ year old memory)

Does your package install if file digest checking is disabled?
