Sorry, I knew that I forgot something. Will upload an updated package
as .tar.gz and .rpm rsn.
Quick fix: on your Intel RedHat box do the following:
rpm2cpio <path-of-rpm-package.rpm> | cpio -i --verbose
You now have rpm installed and can type the following on your MIPS box:
rpm --install <path-of-rpm-package.rpm>
The first line will make shure you have a valid database of installed
packages, the second line will install rpm again. This time the package
will correctly be added to the data base.

Running "rpm --initdb" on the MIPS box should fix that.
