Oh, that's why urpmi is not picking this up for me, these are cooker 
(unstable, development version) packages. Installing cooker rpms on a regular 
Mandriva install is almost guaranteed to trash your system (often pulls in 
new versions of glibc and stuff like that). 

But building and installing a cooker srpm is relatively safe. Usually just 
fails to build if the dependencies are incompatible. I'll give it a shot, 
though I suspect it will fail on the same linker error if not on something
