Here's one way to find out.  The original error was thrown in

% pacman -Qo /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/rpm/__init__.py
/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/rpm/__init__.py is owned by rpm 5.1.9-1

>From the line that threw the exception, is looks like the rpm python
module is importing a C extension module.  Let's see if we can find it.

% pacman -Ql rpm | grep python | grep .so$
rpm /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/rpm/_rpmmodule.so

>From there, just run ldd on
/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/rpm/_rpmmodule.so.  You'll find that it
links to libssl and libkrb5.  So, rebuild that rpm package and you
should be able to get rid of libssl-compatibility.
