But THERE IS NO LOOP. RPM shows loop due to some imaginary dependency.
Package A requires package B which requires /some/dir from package FHS.
But my RPM shows: package A requires package B which requires /some/dir
from package C which requires package D which requires /some/other/dir
from package E which requires package A. And package C does not contain
/some/dir, nor package E contains /some/other/dir. RPM sees dependencies
which are not there, so it reports loop. Details in my previous mail
