No problem - it all worked like a charm.

I removed the 2 RPMs (rpm -e rt rt-mailgate), cloned the rt3 database to 
again, and when I ran "make upgrade-database" it passed with flying colors.

If I need to roll back I can re-install the RPMs and re-instate the 
configs, but hopefull that won't be necessary
