And preferably also on _installed_ packages.

Currently IIRC the only difference in rpmlint between checking
uninstalled and installed binary rpms is that the latter fakes some
checks to always succeed that make no sense for installed packages, and
additionally checks for undefined non-weak symbols in shared libs.  But
it's likely that other useful checks that make sense for installed
packages only will be introduced in the future.
