I'll try that out.  Since I first posted, I discovered that the function
does exist in the RPM 3.0.1 header file, but obviously not 3.0.2.  Is
it that they took the function out?

For Gnome I completely went away from RPMs.  Ironically, it was trying
to install Gnome from RPMs that did it.  I found that the dependencies
were set so stringently that they would fail if I tried to update
anything (i.e. gtk+).  It got too frustrating because I couldn't update
anything without some failed dependency.  That and it seemed like the
pre-RH 6 rpms weren't getting updated.  But no matter--I prefer
compiling from source anyway--I feel like I know more about what's going
on, and it's easier to trouble-shoot.

Ok, sorry about that.  BTW, thanks for the quick response.
