Yep, you'll have to keep fiddling with the contents of RedHat/RPMS/
and what you have in the comps file until you have all the
dependencies satisfied.

BTW, what is this "dependency-check.py" that you mention?

I'm aware of the following tools:
- genhdlist is good in that when it fails it gives some useful error
  messages (it used to simply segfault and dump core:)
- /usr/lib/anaconda-runtime/check-repository.py (remove "import todo")
- Seth Vidal has some useful things here:
  http://www.dulug.duke.edu/treetools/
     add-rpm.py
     checkupdates.py
     comps-check.pl
     depchecktree.py

Did you check out the RULE project?  One of their aims is to produce
trimmed redhat installers that can be used on old low-end boxes.
You might find it useful for your needs...
