There were multiple Bugs suggesting the same, they are linked together for
example from this one from 2005.  But it all got WONTFIXed:
	Debug info RPMs do not "require" exact maching binary rpm

When I have all supported Fedoras in mock most of the days at least one of
them has debuginfos out of sync (=making nightly testing results invalid).
