package
file /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/libxml2.pyc is not owned by any package

Steps to Reproduce:

"rpm -qf" on any of the above files.
  
Actual results:

RPM reports the files aren't owned by any package

Expected results:

Since these files are in /usr/lib, they should be owned by a package.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2007-03-29 10:32:55 EDT
The files also aren't shipped by any package; they get created at runtime when
you run a python app with -O2.

With RHEL5, we've moved to always pre-generating all of the .pyc and .pyo files
which helps to avoid things like this.
