nsiswrapper does dependency analysis, but based on 'root' files that
you give it.  eg. specifying virsh.exe will fetch all libvirt-0.dll
and any other DLLs required (recursively).

The problem with using rpm file lists is that you'll pull in not just
tools like certtool.exe but also development files, pkgconfig etc
which probably aren't what you wanted.  (If you did want them you
can't easily specify them as roots anyhow).

So we can specify the tools we need -- eg. if we want to supply
certtool.exe, list it as well, and nsiswrapper will grab any deps for
