From the 'people.redhat.com testing series, bugzillared per JBJ request:

back on a 7.3 box ...
> whatprovides libelf, and should I nodep it?

Sigh, rpm is gonna have to provide it.

Hmmm, rebuilding from src.rpm, type make install, should install
a libelf-0.8.2.

Bugzilla please, to keep me hoest :-)

No, libelf is buried in librpmdb for legacy

What needs doing is to remove the Requires: libelf >= 0.8.2
from the specfile when building on legacy platforms.
