Description Yu Zhiguo 2007-07-30 21:35:31 EDT
Description of problem:
The description about option '--dump' in manpage is wrong.
"This option must be used with at least one of -l, -c, -d." exists in manpage, 
but in fact, this option can be used singly.

The usage of this option is same with option '--state', they can be used with 
one of -l, -c, -d, and also can be used singly.
If be used singly, they implies -l.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm-4.4.2-37.el5

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1.man rpm
  
Actual results:
"This option must be used with at least one of -l, -c, -d." be outputted.

Expected results:
This description should be deleted from manpage, not be outputted when man rpm.
