when rpm check dependencies, it does not look at ldconfig, it looks at
the names of the other RPM packages.

The rpm spec file says=20
Requires:       gtkhtml >=3D 0.8

but maybe that should be changed to say something like=20
libgtkhtml9 | libgtkhtml10 | libgtkhtml13 | ....

since the lib rpms have the version hardcoded in the name ???
I don't know rpm specs that well.
