Dunno. You've come up with that idea. ;)
Parts of this thread claimed that a minimal install was missing "which",
and all I added was the repoquery to show that only 21 packages depend
on it. And only 1 out of 21 depend on /usr/bin/which.
Package "which" is in the base comps group as well as the minimal
buildroot, but based on dependencies, it seems possible to remove it:
# rpm -e which
error: Failed dependencies:
which is needed by (installed) gstreamer-tools-0.10.34-1.fc15.x86_64
which is needed by (installed) vim-enhanced-2:7.3.138-1.fc15.x86_64
