What's an RPM? :-)
j/k - This is on gentoo linux and it's a separate package and doesn't depend 
on the lvm package.

But on investigating further I see that they compile lvm with clvm in that 
package. Presumably so you can have different versions of clvm and lvm 
installed. Why you would want to do that I don't know.
