Sorry, I missed to reply - Your mail dropped off from my personal radar ;)

Yes, but these are unrelated to your issue.

The "short answer" is simple: Don't install the cpukit rpms. You don't 
need them.

The longer answer: These cpukit rpms are left-ofvers from experiments to 
ship RTEMS binaries (remember rtems-4.10 is the "unstable/experimental" 
branch). Unfortunately, there hasn't been much progress on them 
(actually there have been regressions), causing the packages currently 
being found inside of the repos to be out-dated and actually unusable.

I am not sure if we (i.e. essentially me) will resume supporting 
shipping cpukit rpms, because there are developments in RTEMS, which 
collide with this effort. That said, I am inclined to believe 
rtems-4.10-final will not support external/binary cpukits.
