There has been a problem with (someone else's!) update to package stats.
As with yesterday, it should already be fixed in cvs and will get fixed in
rsync. A clean build from the cvs works.
You should have seen an error message earlier in the build process.

Where did you get RH9.0 from? I don't think it exists.
