If RPM in the build environment is a version that obsoletes packages
based on virtual provides, these Provides/Obsoletes in compat-db are
the culprit. In short, when compat-db "Provides: db4 =
some-low-version", the "db4" packages with a higher version upgrades
compat-db. Some background can be found here:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/111071 It has effected multiple packages
since FC =~ 1

Recently, Panu has mentioned that this "feature" in RPM will go away
in a future release of RPM. But until then, don't use such virtual
provides. They break.

Yes, in this case the automatic library provides in the compat-db
package should be well enough to satisfy anything that /needs/ the
older libraries to function.

Ok, the new compat-db without db4-* provides is now built. I'm Cc'ing
fedora-maintainers as well so that everyone is aware that direct
library dependencies are now needed for packages using older db4s.


Now (scratch) rebuild of oyranos (under review) is okay.
For libdb-4.5.so dependency it is now solved.

Thank you, everyone!
