I see, I misinterpreted the fact that all packages have a last modification 
date of March 6 or after, it is true that most carry the same name as in 
test3. Most of them have therefore been touch'ed and not rebuild, right ?

And since packages based on gcc-4.1.0 and glibc-2.4 stable were indeed rebuilt 
after test 3, it means that most packages on FC5 will have been built with an 
earlier gcc/glibc (pre-release), different from that distributed in the 

As a consequence, if one takes an FC5 SRPM and does a 'rpmbuild -bb', the rpm 
may contain differences from the native RPM disributed with FC5.

Am I right on these points ?

Maybe this deserves a little note in the release notes (unless I am the only 
one who was confused).
