A "Requires:" entry in a SPEC file may define the smallest library version acceptable for the resulting RPM package.
Is it possible by some SPEC logic, to make a "Requires:" entry dynamic?
In other words, is it possible, at RPM build time, to query the installed library release in the build environment, and have the produced RPM be dependent on >= that library version?

Yes,
How would you do that?
Thanks in advance for explaining.

but it shouldn't be necessary. Does the library you're linking against
have issues with a broken soname?
I'll write a follow up post that describes why I consider it.

Thanks,
Kai
