I may be wrong here, but...

file /usr/include/rpm/rpmlib.h includes the following header

	/* This is the *only* module users of rpmlib should need to
include */

	/* and it shouldn't need these :-( */

	#include <rpmio.h>
	#include <dbindex.h>
	#include <header.h>
	#include <popt.h>

Should the above files (excluding popt.h) not have a prefix
of rpm/ as the header files are in the /usr/include/rpm

I know what the comment says, but something still seem to
need them.  And there is that whole completeness thing. :)
I noticed this when building ucd-snmp (from RH 6.0) with

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-10-27 16:39:59 UTC
Add -I/usr/include/rpm to CFLAGS.

I can't change to
	#include <rpm/header.h>
because that prevents rpm itself from building.

The include used to be
	#include "header.h"
but that prevented some (perl?) automated (and broken!) binding
generator from working.
