The error message is bad indeed, will change it to something more easily 
comprehendable for 4.11.2 final.

As for lack of a heads up for this, frankly I didn't expect to see it 
trip up anything in Fedora land as such dependencies are plain broken: 
In ranged dependencies the last part is always just an EVR version 
string, name does not belong there. While rpm version comparison will 
decide *something* on such a string, its almost certainly not what the 
packager intended.

So apparently this is a highly useful and important sanity check, much 
more so than I expected :)
