superfluous consultation of /usr/lib/rpm/rpmrc?

Robert P. J. Day

  pedantic nitpickery ... just noticed in the man page for "rpm" the
default path for configuration files:

--rcfile FILELIST
  Replace  the  list of configuration files to be read. Each of the files in
  the colon separated FILELIST is read sequentially by rpm for configuration
  information.   Only the first file in the list must exist, and tildes will
  be expanded to the value of $HOME.  The default FILELIST is

and while both of those first two files exist on my F27 system, the
latter (/usr/lib/rpm/redhat/rpmrc) opens with the line:

  include: /usr/lib/rpm/rpmrc

which seems superfluous as that file is already part of the default

  i'm sure it doesn't do any harm, it just seems unnecessary, no?
