Make sure that you run this command as root; otherwise, you will
encounter file access problems and get erroneous "missing" output.

Most of the rpm -Va output will be noise. If you see "........C" as
the error status don't worry.  This is a documentation problem for rpm
and a SELinux configuration issue that the Fedora Core / Red Hat
developers have not fixed, ref: 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla-old/show_bug.cgi?id=120464 .  You
can also disregard "S.5....TC c" errors because configuration files
when modified will have differing Size, MD5 and Mtime values compared
to the spec.file.

Do pay attention to "missing" error.  You may need to reinstall a
package to fix the problem.
