Memprof library (libbfd) problem

	I'm trying to install Memprof from Owen's homepage.  This is on my
i386 Mandrake 6.1 system.


[root@localhost dereks]# rpm -ivh memprof-0.3.0-1.i386.rpm 
error: failed dependencies: is needed by memprof-0.3.0-1

	I have this:

[root@localhost dereks]# rpm -qa | grep binutils

	...which has this:

[root@localhost dereks]# rpm -ql binutils | grep libbfd

	...but I have the more up-to-date instead of that is needed by Memprof.  This is not just a
problem with the RPM, either: the binary actually requires that version:

[root@localhost dereks]# rpm -i --nodeps memprof-0.3.0-1.i386.rpm 
user otaylor does not exist - using root
group otaylor does not exist - using root
[...many repeats of the otaylor error, it'd be nice to fix this...]

[root@localhost dereks]# ldd /usr/bin/memprof | grep libbfd => not found

	I really don't feel like downgrading my, or like fscking
up my RPM database by installing .tar.gz distributed libraries.  Is there
anything I can do?  This is really annoying.


P.S.> I'm curious as to why is required, instead of
