Because, mypackage rpm runs postinstall script and I have error:

Failed to start BIND : <tt>Starting named: /usr/sbin/named: symbol lookup 
error: /usr/sbin/named: undefined symbol: dns_resolver_setudpsize

 I have to update bind-libs before postinstall script will be run. 
 Thank you for your help.
