Sigh... (hopefully just) one more rc.

The payload format checking caused packages generated with rpm-3.x to be 
uninstallable because those old packages don't *have* a payload format tag 
in the header. Pretty much a showstopper, and since rc3 was needed 
anyway I put in a couple of other fixes as well, couple of which were 
planned for earlier but just forgotten, duh.

Changes since rc2:
- permit installing packages with no payload format tag
- fix ordering with --nodeps
- don't close scriptlet stdout by accident
- fix including exported headers from C++

The tarball is at http://rpm.org/releases/testing/rpm- 
and sha1sum for it is 48920315aeb81c55fbed6a7a86f6d89d24ac1776.
