MiscError: Unknown header tag basepath

Local variables in innermost frame:
self: glibc-kernheaders - 3.0-5.2.x86_64
tag: basepath
e: 'unknown header tag'

Full details...

It seemed to do this on every package that was no longer shipped in FC6.  We
removed each, the tried upgrade again, then it would crash again.  We repeated
this until it crashed on dbus-devel in this same manner... which did not fit
this pattern.
