Description Joe Orton 2004-03-02 08:12:12 EST
The copy of zlib embedded in librpmio.so does not have symbol names
changed to avoid clashes with libz.so.  Potential mess if an
application dlopens librpmio and the system libz.so has a different
ABI to the copy of zlib embedded in librpmio.

I'll attach the list of symbols.

Yup, pissed away 5 days figgering the symbol pollution w yum
2 weeks ago.

rpm-4.3 is built now (and has been for the last 2 weeks) without
internal zlib.
