Thanks!  Unfortunately the problem of opendnssec depending on Sqlite
v3.4.2+ still would need another solution, because it seems your sqlite
package replaces the RHEL/CentOS 5 official sqlite installation.

I'm sorry but this is exactly what I'm hoping we could avoid, that is, not
to force package users "void warranty" of their RHEL/CentOS installation
by replacing system software (sqlite is required by e.g. RPM tool itself).

To attract more RHEL/CentOS 5 users to use OpenDNSSEC I think it would
be good to have the packages distributed via EPEL where the policy on
replacing official parts is strict:

"Does EPEL replace packages provided within Red Hat Enterprise Linux
or layered products?

No. EPEL is purely a complimentary repository that provide add-on
