yeah...looks like what happened is this:

- There didn't use to be a glibc-common package. It was all in the
main glibc package. 

- redhat came out with an update for glibc with the new package. 

- I added in the updated glibc, and added the new package
(glibc-common) to just krud extras (since it was a new package, not an
upgrade or so my script said). 

So, this should be fixed (not in the march one but the april one). I
just need to make sure it ads it in...it's strange and anoying that
there is not a dependency on glibc-common from the other glibc
packages. Oh well. ;)
