busted kde update

FC6 box here, trying to keep it up to date.
I just had to revert the kdepim here to version 3.5.6-0.2.fc6.i386.rpm.
Why? It seems the recent update here, that put in 3.5.6-6 which is only
half-assed done due to a missing library message from smart or yum if I
include any of the graphics stuff, is also accompanied by missing libraries
such as /usr/lib/kde3/kcm_kmail.la, a minor detail that disables kmail's
ability to send mail, or to access its configuration from the pulldown. Why
the deps resolution didn't catch that I have NDI.
The other missing library that prevents the full update is (from yumex)
13:27:03 : failure: kdnssd-avahi-devel-0.1.3-0.1.20060713svn.fc6.i386.rpm from
release: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
That's from checking ONLY the kdegraphics to be updated. Dependencies pull in
a couple of -devel packages, and they pull in this.
I don't use avahi here, but if I try to remove it, it will also rip out about
150 megs worth of other kde stuff, and that's a bad dog, no bisquit to me.
So what became of the 3.5.6-6.fc6 updates that have been visible for a week
now? Too much of this maybe?
