As the original poster, it looks like I've really messed up:
I have *both* glib2-2.1.5-1.i386.rpm _and_
glibc-2.3.1-26.i686.rpm installed. OTH, I can't remove either one:

Isn't glib2 something completely different to glibc?

root]# rpm -e glibc-2.3.1-26.i686.rpm
rpm: relocation error: rpm: symbol pthread_cond_init, version GLIBC_2.3.2 not defined in file libpthread.so.0 with link time reference

That's pretty interesting too. Don't confuse package names with file names. The file glibc-2.3.1-26.i686.rpm )probably) contains glibc-2.3.1-26 for the i686 architecture. To erase it, rpm --erase --force glibc-2.3.1-26

but expect your system to not run afterwoods.

... as I thought... I was pondering wether I might remove using the
--force option, and _THEN_ installing glibc-2.3.1-30.i686.rpm
*before* rebooting/shutdown. But I'm afraid that I might make
things even worse, particularly the possibility of not being able to
reboot the system. Is there any way I can save my skin (other than a
new install of Phoebe)?

At this point, I can't even install rpm-4.2-0.50.i386.rpm, either!
