$ rpm -q --file /usr/lib/
$ rpm -q --file /lib/
$ ls -l /usr/lib/
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root           20 Dec 27 14:41 /usr/lib/ -> ../../lib/

In glibc-2, /usr/lib/ is a symbolic link to /lib/ - so
if you have a non-glibc libdb installed, this probably conflicts with
glibc-devel so that /usr/lib/ may end up being link to the old ...
