I didn't see this on a clean install, but..

S means size differs from rpmdb entry, ? means the md5sum test could not be 
done. I'm guessing interference from prelink. If you can, turn it off(*) and 
re-run the test.

(*) change to "PRELINKING=no" in /etc/sysconfig/prelink and 
run /etc/cron.daily/prelink.
