Rawhide is badly broken currently.  The kernel is fine, but 
random packages are broken in public rawhide.

If deps are missing from my ftpspace, just email me and let me 
know what is missing (I cant always keep up).

You'll have to check the rpm changelogs.  I make very verbose 
changelogs to relieve myself from having to answer many people 
(10+ per day) asking what is new or changed that might affect 
them.  Sorry I cannot give more specific information than that 

rpm -qp --changelog somefile.rpm

Hope this helps.
