In lib/dbconfig.c, the variable db3_config_default contains the option
is not a recognized option in rdbOptions. As a result, when the default
used (which seems to be the case if the RPM database is rpm rpm 3.x), one
a spurious error message.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Red Hat 6.2 (but don't take the rpm-4.0.2-6.x upgrade, of
2. Get a copy of /bin/rpm from a Red Hat 7 machine (with or without the
3. Run a simple rpm query, like "rpm -q kernel".
Actual Results: dbiSetConfig: unrecognized option: "db3" ignored.

Expected Results: kernel-2.2.14-12
You can't just take a binary from Red Hat 7.x and run it on Red Hat 6.x. Even
rpm is statically linked, that just means that dlopen() is used to load various
modules. There's other lossage, including incompatible i18n structures, and
db3 lossage as well.
Use the version of rpm compiled for Red Hat 6.x, AFAIK, there are no problems
(and no differences in configuration) in that package. However, please reopen
this bug if I'm wrong.
