When the `lmdb` package is not installed the `rpm` command fails to run. Currently `lmdb` is listed as an optional dependency but it appears that it's required.

Additional info:
rpm-tools.log is attached demoing the issue

Steps to reproduce:

1) Install rpm-tools in a clean chroot
2) Run `rpm --help`

[root@root /]# rpm --help
rpm: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
This task depends upon

Thank you for the report. lmdb moved to the list of required dependencies as part of r553097. It will be available with the next package binary release.
