Yes, this is captured in a Bugzilla that was automatically filed last week
by Fedora automation. I goofed up when I packaged the Sword 1.9.0RCs during
the Fedora 34 beta cycle (I misnamed the RPM package so dnf sorted the RC
as higher version than 1.9.0). I finally fixed that about a month ago, but
the soname the linker used to build Xiphos was the beta version leading to
the error you see. The Xiphos package is still looking for the RC.

I couldn't make time to rebuild the Xiphos and Bible Time packages between
sorting out the SWORD package and my wedding. All that needs done is for
the two application packages to be rebuilt. If anyone else here is a Fedora
packager, you can rebuild those against the 1.9.0 by just a revision bump.
Otherwise I'll be home from my honeymoon and back to work on Monday where I
can do the rebuild.

I've only got my phone with me during this honeymoon month, so I can't do
the fix myself until I'm home.
