I would suggest just to give up. Dependencies in RPM packages in Fedora
haven't meant anything for a long time already. Improvements are ignored
(am I allowed to say Suggests/Recommends here?), bugs against broken
dependencies WONTFIXed or ignored as well (try to run Rawhide and
upgrade just some packages and do it repeatedly for a long time ... you
will collect a lot of nice WONTFIXes).

They mean only whatever form of abuse anybody treats them to currently.
