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
The docs are incomplete and lack a short explanation on build
requirements which are dependencies of core packages. Packages which
are considered fundamental for the Fedora build environment also
belong to that list.
The "fedora-rpmdevtools" packages pulls in a few additional packages
which in turn pull in even more dependencies.
$ rpm -qR fedora-rpmdevtools
config(fedora-rpmdevtools) = 0:0.0.20-0.fdr.1
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1
