Hmm, this is odd, I noticed that according to:

abiword was successfully rebuilt:

  * Mon Dec 21 2009 Peter Robinson <pbrobinson at> - 1:2.8.1-3
  - Rebuild against new libwv

but the depcheck shows it still broken:

1:abiword-2.8.1-3.fc13.i686 requires

Similarly it looks like parts of ghc were rebuilt:

  * Mon Dec 21 2009 Yaakov M. Nemoy <ynemoy at> -
  - updated to latest upstream
  - updates spec to use shared libraries and new ghc

Is there something perhaps wrong with the dep check script?
