Hi Ken,

I'm running 5.4 here on my system and I have xine installed.  I just 
updated faad2 and everything went fine here.  Here is a list of what was 
updated:

Nov 11 05:08:24 Updated: faad2-2.7-1.el5.rf.i386
Nov 11 05:08:26 Updated: ffmpeg-0.5-3.el5.rf.i386
Nov 11 05:08:30 Updated: xine-lib-1.1.16.3-2.el5.rf.i386
Nov 11 05:08:50 Updated: vlc-0.9.9a-4.el5.rf.i386

Also I went and checked in /usr/lib and the libdirect, libdirectfb, and 
libfusion version I have installed are:

libdirect-1.2.so.0      libdirectfb-1.2.so.0
libdirect-1.2.so.0.4.0  libdirectfb-1.2.so.0.4.0
libfusion-1.2.so.0  libfusion-1.2.so.0.4.0

I don't have any other repos setup except for rpmforge and priorities 
are setup.\

HTH.
