So the deal with rpm is this:

  * Build-dep on libtool1.4 for now. libtool 1.5 does not like the way rpmio
    tries to link in a .lo files from ../beecrypt. A better fix will have to
    wait on the new upstream version of rpm. Closes: #208390

Unfortunatly, the new upstream version of rpm turned out to contain
non-free software, and this is still unresolved. I also forget if it
actually fixed the bug; if it did the fix could perhaps be backported.

(Before someone asks, the reason rpm includes its own copy of beecrypt is
that it uses internal functions from beecrypt.)
