And we are not relaying on system's rpm at all. If you want to upgrade your rpm db1 database to db3 version. You have to run all commands from setup_rpm() function to prepare RPM environment and, after that, run $RPMD $RPM_FLAGS --root $ROOT --rebuilddb (you have to substitute all variables with real values from the instalworld.sh. But it's much easier to download binary distribution (it's only 90Mbytes) and run make installworld :) -- (GM)
