[Fedora-packaging] rpmdevtools required for rebuilding packages on F7

Recently my friend (which isn't a Fedora packager) was rebuilding my
package on F7 and he got an error. It seems that there is check-rpaths used:

+ /usr/lib/rpm/check-rpaths /usr/lib/rpm/check-buildroot
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.39128: line 43: /usr/lib/rpm/check-rpaths: No such file
or directory
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.39128 (%install)

There is no that call in FC5 and it was probably introduced in F7.
check-rpaths is provided by rpmdevtools which isn't on "the minimum
build environment" list:
(maybe because it was in Extras prior to F7)

So the question, shouldn't it be added to mentioned list?
