Mandrake 7.1 is somewhat old. Latest version is Mandrake 8.0, on which 
it works.

And yes, minor version change matters here. The version 4 RPMs are 
supported by rpm-4.x shipped with RH 7.0 and higher or for older Red 
Hats (like 6.2) you have to upgrade to rpm 3.0.5 or higher to be able to 
use these packages.
The update to rpm 3.0.5 is officialy recommended by Red Hat for their 
older distros if you need to install these new format RPMs.
