I concluded that this amounted to a new sort of dependency
problem. So I tried my usual big hammer, in this case taking the form
"yum remove kdepim," taking note of all it removes along with that.

"Yum update" then completes, as usual in these cases. However,
neither "yum install kdepim" nor anything which tries to add kdepim as a
dependency does either.

Since I run Gnome, and only call an occasional KDE app (usually
Konqueror, and usually for its presentation of man pages); and since
Konqueror still works for me; I conclude that I'm OK enough -- kdepim,
which I have yet to use, can wait.

But, fwiw, it does seem to indicate some problem with kdepim.
