RPM > 4.1 contains a bug when building on solaris.

Specifically if you have a filepath/name that looks like:


RPM reports a cyclical link and aborts.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
4.3.x definatly has this problem, I did not check 4.2.

Fix for _D_EXACT_NAMELEN(d) macro

The following is the proper way to detect the filename length.	The old

Checked in, will be in rpm-4.4.5-0.5 when built.
