 jeff, regarding a RHEL3 machine:

 I have occasionally seen this behavior and I am not entirely sure why. My
 system uses alternatives to get the symlinks right. Sometimes it isn't
 triggered correctly or it cannot find the macros necessary to run the
 alternatives macros. I believe it's probably rooted in /usr/lib/rpm/rpmrc
 not having an macrofiles entry for /etc/rpm/macros.* In later distros,
 macrofiles entry exists so that packages can install their own macro files
 in /etc/rpm. To fix this, it may require an upgrade to rpm-redhat-config.
 Please hang a Trac for this too.
