I don't really know.

You may also want to check the rest of the packages for integrity. You
can do that with:
  rpm -V -a
Some changes will be obviously ok (for example changed configuration
files), but it you see missing files then most probably you want to
force reinstall the package that used to contain them to fix the
potential problem.
