Actually, you can get these dependencies-from-hell problems with RPM. It 
may be that you installed your lcms by another means, in which case RPM 
can't find it. You can always try 'ldconfig' as root, but my experience 
is that won't work to help with RPM issues.

What you really want to use is YUM (which installs RPMs). Yum will check 
for dependencies AND get them. My recollection is that lcms and 
lcms-devel are in the Extras (and probably Livna) repositories, so you 
have to have repos.d set up. When I upgraded to FC4, it seemed that the 
Extras repo was set up automatically.
