Subject: broken rpm for fc5?

grass obtained from: Trento Italy site
grass binary for platform: Downloaded precompiled Binaries
GRASS Version: 6.2.0

Is the Grass rpm for fc5 broken perhaps, or is it just me? There appears to be a whole bunch of unresolved dependencies (all of them core grass libraries). While the Grass rpm for fc4 complains of two unresolved Xorg type dependencies on my machine (bug report #5253), it appears to install and run fine on fc5 (kernel 2.6.17-1.2187_FC5, with all other Fedora updates available up to about two weeks ago applied) using --nodeps. This is not the case with the Grass rpm for fc5. Whether I try to install over the fc4 version, or remove the fc4 version first, the fc5 version will not install without --nodeps, and once installed it won't load - gis.m flashes on the screen very briefly and then grass dies.

Note that grass 6.2.0rc1 compiled just fine on my machine with fc2 running at the time, and continued to run fine after upgrading to fc5.
