It shouldn't remove, but replace them with ffmpeg and librpm43, right?

libpostproc moved from mplayer to ffmpeg (rather at the same time
mplayer started hosting ffmpeg's CVS), so effectively ffmpeg swallowed
libpostproc, and %{_libdir}/libpostproc* belong to ffmpeg now.

Wrt to rpm-libs: ATrpms provides rpm upgrades for older Red Hat/Fedora
Core releases since a couple of years. In order to not break
dependencies librpmXX packages are created (like to ones Red Hat
itself created some time ago). rpm-libs itself is missing the version
info in comparison to prior rpm releases, and will also be removed in
the near future:

But these topics are probably more relevant for ATrpms-users, I guess :)
