In this case, though, there was a mass rebuild for F15 for the new xz
compression, and all packages WERE supposed to be rebuilt, but many, including
this one, never were. (See
http://robatino.fedorapeople.org/old_compression_DVDs/ for lists of packages on
the DVDs which are still using the old xz compression, this is just a fraction
of what's in the Everything repo.)
