[PlanetCCRMA] ladspa-sdk -> ladspa: the never ending saga

Hi all. There were some issues remaining with the change of name of the
ladspa package (from ladspa-sdk) under Fedora Core 1, see:


Christopher Kriese reported the problem this morning. After a
successfull install (this only happens on Fedora Core 1) the rpm
database is left in a "not too happy" state :-) If you try to install
anything else you get errors from rpm basically saying that ladspa is
not there. And believe me, it _is_ there (the repeatable sequence is:
install planetccrma-audioapps, then try installing
planetccrma-audiovideoapps, which fails). 

I finally gave up and rebuilt all ladspa plugin packages that had
explicit references to ladspa-sdk (the old name), so that they don't
need that, and rebuilt ladspa itself to not "Provide:" ladspa-sdk,
something I initially did to mantain backwards compatibility with the
older packages). So "ladspa-sdk" does not exist any more in the package
repository for Fedora Core 1. 

With both fixes in place rpm is again "happy"...

I have not updated the web site yet and have not rebuilt for RH either
so the direct links to packages in the web pages will not reflect the
newer packages for FC1 (but apt will see and use them).
