I am the maintainer for the official build2 packages on Fedora. I'm not
sure exactly where you are looking at that list of RPMs, but the main
source package is build2, and this has several subpackages[1], including
build2, build2-rpm-macros, libbuild2, libbutl, libbpkg, bpkg, and bdep. If
you wish to install bpkg, you should install the bpkg subpackage.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

P.S.: The ~bootstrap appearing in the package names just means that these
packages were bootstrapped, not that you need to bootstrap anything
yourself. These should be fully functional build2 packages.
