They look like symlink deps. Does poldek known them?
rpm 4.4.9 doesn't allow to install packages with broken symlinks.

libknodecommon.so.3.0.0 is in kdepim-knode, which is not required in
other way (by explicit, soname or directory deps).

BTW, shouldn't libknodecommon.so symlink be moved to -devel?

Similar case with libraries distributed over packages not required
otherwise by -devel.
