You probably forced the install of rpm. This build of rpm requires an
updated version of glibc.

Are these rpms from ftp.rpm.org? If yes, they should be exchanged with
builds from non-updated systems.

You can go back to rpm-4.1 or forth to glibc-2.3.2-4.80.6, you'll have
to manually unpack about 3-4 rpm packages in both cases.

Use

		rpm2cpio foo.rpm | cpio -imd 

to unpack the contents of the rpms at a temporary location and move
the files to their destination.

Given the possible further damage a manual glibc update could do (I am
nor sure whether rpm 4.1.1 can be downgraded to 4.1 again, there were
some db4 changes), it might be easier and safer to backup the system
and reinstall from scratch.
