I'd say the exceptions list needs to be larger, stuff like
coreutils, glibc-devel, glibc-headers, glibc-kernheaders, bzip2
certainly need to be in (ideally as real dependencies of rpm-build
Hmm, I'd rather like C-specific stuff (glibc-devel, glibc-headers,
glibc-kernheaders) being dependencies on a "C Development" meta package
containing only the dependencies on those packages along with gcc, etc.
rpm-build shouldn't depend on more than it really needs to run
(coreutils, bzip2, gzip, anything else?).
