That may be true, however, the way the RPMS are set up, it is showing up 
as a require to install the Log rpm to have php-pear-MDB2 installed ... 
I did not write the spec file, I just built it.

So, it is there because if I do a repo closure, it has to be there.

If you can't find the other RPMS in other places I can add them ... but 
I have to have repoclosure.
