If you build a package with certian things installed, it links to certian
programs, if you build it with more or less things installed than RH did,
it can have extra (or not enough) links.

They are both "genuine" and they both work ... but they are different.  We
don't want to be different, so we will adjust the build environemnt and
build it again in these cases after a comparison.
