That is your real problem. It can hit any package and usually happens
if you install/upgrade packages while the nighly prelink script is
(still) running, or when the prlink script is abruptly aborted.

This is not a package conflict, prelink just killed some libs. I
haven't seen this behaviour with FC4 anymore, so it looks like it was
fixed there.
