I just had a script brought to my attention that utilizes output containing
the %{fileverifyflags} output.  I have read a few results from google that
mention this flag, but non seem to explain what a "-1" result means.  On my
system I have 1385 packages that return -1, and around 30 that return
various other numbers (mostly -40).  The results of running rpm -qV on
those packages that return -1 can vary.


I am having a hard time deciphering the purpose of this test, and the
context clues in our code are not very helpful.

Thanks for any input.
