The Fedora 12 version of rpm (which is also in F10 & F11 updates)
supports LZMA compression in addition to gzip & bzip2.  All of the
packages in F12 are LZMA-compressed.  For some reason, the older version
of rpm isn't realizing that and failing in a sensible way.

You can use mock on Fedora 12 to rebuild for RHEL/CentOS, or you can at
least use Fedora 12's rpm2cpio to unpack the source rpm, then rebuild
with "rpm -ba" on RHEL/CentOS.
