  Ok, since it's promotion time for solutions to RPM upgrade hassle,
I suggest people have a look at rpmfind, this tool, allow to search and
upgrade packages, in an automated way. It locate the "best" package(s)
needed (it solves the dependency search too), and even do the transfer for

takes to solve it:

~ -> rpmfind -latest
bad option 'instchangelog' at /usr/lib/rpmrc:15
