I did a

$ rpm -Va > rpm.out 2> rpm.err

Here is a part of rpm.err
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
prelink: /tmp/#prelink#.2fZALK: Recorded 41 dependencies, now seeing -1
 

prelink: /tmp/#prelink#.O8nK50: Recorded 46 dependencies, now seeing -1

The rpm.out file is rather large, and shows many missing parts.
Some seem pretty innocuous, but others I don't know about.
Several of the files are marked as "?" which isn't mentioned in
the man page.
-- 
p="p=%c%s%c;main(){printf(p,34,p,34);}";main(){printf(p,34,p,34);}
This message made from 100% recycled bits.
You have found the bank of Larn.
I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
