Started checking some of the rpm --verify errors. Google returned a link
that mentioned libgtkembedmoz.so in relation to an xulrunner error when
trying to prelink. Discovered this. Big size and date difference.

# locate libgtkembedmoz

# ls -l `locate libgtkembedmoz`
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  97612 May 24
2008 /usr/lib/esc-1.0.0/xulrunner/libgtkembedmoz.so
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 121172 Nov 20
09:12 /usr/lib/thunderbird-

Since ATM I don't know what these libraries do, I wondered if it might
be related to the problem.

# rpm -q --whatprovides /usr/lib/esc-1.0.0/xulrunner/libgtkembedmoz.so
# rpm -q --whatprovides /usr/lib/thunderbird-

I didn't want to re-install xulrunner just to fix the prelink as it
would muddy the waters.

# rpm -q --whatrequires xulrunner
