Ah, yes, I forgot about package-cleanup.  So, skipping the F-10
kernel, here is what "package-cleanup --orphans" reports on my virtual
Rawhide machine:

glibc-2.9-2.x86_64
glibc-common-2.9-2.x86_64
glibc-devel-2.9-2.x86_64
glibc-headers-2.9-2.x86_64
libdhcp-1.99.8-1.fc10.x86_64
libdhcp4client-4.0.0-30.fc10.x86_64
libdhcp6client-1.0.22-1.fc10.x86_64
nscd-2.9-2.x86_64
xorg-x11-drv-mga-1.4.9-1.fc9.x86_64
xorg-x11-drv-mouse-1.3.0-2.fc9.x86_64

I admit that having glibc on that list really surprises me.  It's such
a fundamental piece of the system...
