Yes, except that as far as I know, the only place it's been mentioned is
here.  (See my suggestion, powers that be, that it would save a lot of
trouble for people to put a mention by the place where people are
directed to download).  

You *might* by now, be able to fix this by just doing, before running
yum update

yum upgrade rpm

I don't know if it's been fixed to that point yet.

If not.

yum install yum-downloadonly

This will work.

yum --downloadonly install db4-utils

This will download db4-utils and possibly some dependencies and exit
after downloading.

Go to /var/cache/yum/rawhide packages and install db4-utils with

rpm -Uvh db4-utils

This should also work.

At this point, you can grab the tarball I put up--the stuff is also, as
far as I know, still at koji, but in case it isn't.

wget http://www.scottro.net/rpms.tar.bz2

Once it's downloaded

tar jxvf rpms.tar.bz2

cd rpms
rpm -Uvh *rpm

After that, yum update should work.
