Description of problem:
While trying to do some "rawhide" upgrades, my yum stopped working
with an error like complaining about a missing symbol rpm_execcon. It
turns out I was allowed to upgrade rpm and fellow packages, but it did
not upgrade libselinux properly.

Would it maybe make sense to have a version dependency on libselinux
in the SPEC file for the rpm packages?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm-4.3.3-8 and/or rpm-libs-4.3.3-8

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgraded RPM
2. Tried to run yum
3. yum fails to load the python module rpmmodule.so, missing the
rpm_execcon symbol

Additional info:
Comment 1 Paul Nasrat 2005-09-27 17:32:38 EDT
API symbol changes in selinux should have a soname change - rpm in rawhide has a
library requirement on libselinux.so.1

Current rawhide should be working correctly.  This seems to have just been a
rawhide in flux bug
