Wierd, I just confirmed the issue.  There is not a /usr/bin/false, but 
there IS a /bin/false on a stock 5.2 install.  You might check in the 
rpmforge forums/list archives for some mention of this problem.

I thought I might be able to symlink /bin/false to /usr/bin/false (a 
kludge, I admit) or copy /bin/false to /usr/bin/false, but neither seems 
to work for me.  Like I said, probably best to check with rpmforge.
