What do you mean by 'redundant and dangerous' dependencies?  Just to be
clear, you mean the Requires and not the BuildRequires correct?  We had
problems in the past with those not being picked up correctly, which is
why they were explicitly listed.  It looks like they are build fine now
on fc3 so they can probably be removed from the Requires section.  So
while it may not be possibly needed now, how is it considered dangerous?

Can you give specifics about what you are talking please.
