RPMs not finding dependancies

I've recently created an RPM on a 7.0 box to be installed on an 8.0 box that I got the following errors when trying to install:

     error: Failed dependencies:
        libodbcinst.so is needed by j2re-1.4.1_02-1
        libodbc.so is needed by j2re-1.4.1_02-1

Funny thing is, these files exist:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 20 Oct 22 17:49 /usr/lib/libodbcinst.so
-> libodbcinst.so.1.0.0*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 16 Oct 22 17:25 /usr/lib/libodbc.so -> libodbc.so.1.0.0*

and are supplied by standard 8.0 RPMS:

     1%  rpm -qf /usr/lib/libodbc.so
     2%  rpm -qf /usr/lib/libodbcinst.so

So why is RPM claiming they are missing?

I've done a "rpm --rebuilddb" to no advantage. Odd thing as well is an "strace -f -F rpm -i j2re-1.4.1_02-1.rpm" doesn't even show an attempt to open or find these dynamic libraries, so I assume it's deciding that the dependancies are missing from the RPM databases itself.

I've had this before with other RPMs and have never been able to figure out the answer.

Anyone else? I DO NOT want to do an "rpm --nodeps" for the install. This is going to get used throughout our enterprise.

Thanks in advance,

- Matt

PS: Many other RPMs built by the same 7.0 system work just fine.
