And what insane spec files produce dangling symlinks?

A large amount of -devel packages have .so symlinks that are dangling
within the -devel package itself.  However rpm is smart enough to
figure out where that link is pointing to and add a hard requires to
that file.

Speaking of which, handling library paths better would be nice. Right now if you say "provides: libxpcom.so" you'll satisfy dependencies for things, whether that library is in the linker path or not.

Kindof complicated to get right, unfortunately.
