don't worry about it, I didn't bother looking into this again. If the
client wants stats, he'll have to backup and reinstall.

The VPS is running CentOS 5.2 x64, btw, running cPanel. And the
problem comes from the fact that I dint' install an rpm, but relied on
building from source, as per a weblink I found on google. But since
CentOS isn't compatible with source files, I won't attempt this again.
If / when there are other rpm problems, then I'll just tell the client
to backup his data and reinstall.

Kind Regards
