Description of problem:
When upgrading a RH8 box to phoebe, I discovered several 
dependancy errors, one of them being that Xft is being merged
with XFree86-libs and that Xft is not being advertized, resulting
in a failed upgrade.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install RH8 on a clean box
2.run rpm -F *rpm in a dir with all the rpm files for phoebe

Actual Results:  I got a critical error the upgrade could not be completed because
some installed packages depended on Xft and it was not provided.

Expected Results:  It should have upgraded my system without glitches.
