Getting a clue...

Thanks for the link.

Yeah, I'm familiar with the annoyance of tracking version numbers across
vendor repos. :-(
However, we don't actually use Red Hat's packages in this case, our RelEng
team builds using whatever tarball link I send them...and I always download
from isc.org to be safe.
So... Since I've been playing with 9.8.x daily for the past few months, I
must have typoed something when asking "9.8.0-P4" to be upgraded awhile back
and ended up with this "9.8.1-P4" monstrosity.

Thanks for additional clarification, and sorry for the noise. Those Google
results for 9.8.1-P4 really threw me -- more proof it can't be trusted. ;-)
By nature, men are nearly alike;
by practice, they get to be wide apart.
