GDAL at Fedora is in package set "gdal" (note that there are multiple
subpackages). See:

  yum search GDAL

Does installing package "gdal" help?

Maybe. Reading the documentation and/or examining the source code may give
a clue about what exactly it searches for. It seems there is only a
dependency on "gdal-libs" but not on the "gdal" base package. That could
be a missing dependency.
