libtool: compile: unable to infer tagged configuration
libtool: compile: specify a tag with `--tag'
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.P7uLIx (%build)
    Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.P7uLIx (%build)

Expected results:

db4 has been renamed to libdb4 and that builds fine on F-18. db4 shouldn't be used.
