Am I reading your EPEL 5 libguestfs package changelog right? You've
created the same broken dep also for EPEL 5. And in response to this thread
you have released malfunctioning software instead?

 %changelog
+* Wed May 13 2009 Richard Jones <rjones redhat com> - 1.0.23-9
+- Remove the runtime requires on non-existant package.  It'll just fail
+  instead.

Btw, the F-10 update would have had a higher %release than the F-11
update (1.0.21-4.fc10 > 1.0.21-3.fc11).
