Sorry, a test was disabled on rpm-4.10+ but we failed to parse version string
with "RC" in it...

Else, for the record like beta1+patches, both  URPM & urpmi testsuite
patches after adapting to new weak tags.

Previously, we only handled suggests among the 4 weak deps tags (whereas
we should have used Recommends instead & we should have ignored Suggests)
so I'm considering switching from suggests to recommends as the only
tag supported by URPM/urpmi (with a mga specific patch for rpm that makes
recommendnevrsTag() try new RECOMMENDNAME then OLDSUGGESTSNAME
_without_ the strong hint).
