I've been using alien to convert the packages to tarballs, unpacking the last release and the update release into separate directories and then check the ldd output. This could be scripted, but would require QA people to install alien.

alien isn't necessary. Use rpm2cpio, which comes with rpm:


rpm2cpio file.rpm | cpio -idv -

Thanks for the tip!
