Strange dependencies added by rpmbuild


Because I need to install CA's Siteminder web agent on a number of web
servers I want to create an rpm from the binary installer delivered by

Probably in part because I'm not familiar (yet) with how to build RPMs I
have run into a number of issues but finally I have been able to build
an RPM of both an older version and a newer version.  (I won't go into
the details as to why I need both - it's a long story.)

Anyway installing the RPM I built from the old version works fine.
However when I try to upgrade the old version to the new I get:
# rpm -Uvh webagent-6.5.12-1.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        libodbc.so is needed by webagent-6.5.12-1
        libodbcinst.so is needed by webagent-6.5.12-1
        libverify.so(VER_1) is needed by webagent-6.5.12-1

These dependencies are also displayed in rpmbuilds output:

What I find strange is that even though these files are detected as
dependencies they are nowhere to be found on the machine on which I
built the RPM.

I have tried to discover why these files would be added as dependencies
by following the steps the find-requires script takes (as described on
But they are not listed (well "libverify.so" is but not

How can I determine whether or not these files are actually needed?  And
if they are not how can I prevent rpmbuild from including them as

Kind regards
