Hmmm ... Panu has a point, I guess. His reasoning seems to be that
redhat-rpm-config is required for sane behavior on RHEL/Fedora
platforms, but it might not be required --- or even available --- on
other RPM-using platforms, therefore it's not appropriate for either
rpm-build or individual SRPMs to Require: it. It would seem to me,
though, that that makes it a distribution bug: Red Hat distros should
ensure that redhat-rpm-config is always installed. Otherwise it's
possible to mis-build on Red Hat platforms, which is exactly what
all the package-require infrastructure is supposed to prevent.
*Somebody* other than the end user ought to be taking care of this.
I've added a comment about this to the above BZ entry.
