Announcement:
https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-devel-list/2008-July/msg00477.html

Full changelog:
http://wiki.rpm.org/Releases/4.5.90

Most interesting change from our POV:

- %{_topdir} now defaults to $(HOME)/rpmbuild/, /usr/src/redhat/ is
no more.

- Rpm now supports "arch dependencies", so eg. foo-devel dependencies can
be expressed correctly. Please wait for FPC recommendations on the
subject, this needs a mass rebuild to be usable.

- Rpm now collects pkg-config and libtool dependencies automatically.
Initially only provides will be created to avoid creating unsolvable
dependencies though.
