You never mentioned where you got those RPMs.  Did you build them
yourself or did you download them?  Did you previously install
locally-built (by you) Owl RPMs on this system?

If you simply used "make installworld" using our pre-built RPMs, the
upgrade should have been smooth.

If you build your own RPMs and try to cross a major change in this way
(such as our update of OpenSSL or GCC), then, yes, you may get into
dependency hell that you'd need to resolve on your own.  Ways to resolve
it _might_ be found in owl-dev list postings from the right time period;
they generally involve multiple install/build/install steps.  If you're
not into developing Owl, then I suggest that you only upgrade using our
pre-built RPMs.
