What I mean is that suddenly it seems we're back to BuildRequiring
lots of hardcoded package names or file paths for low-level tools that
should _just be there_ in a core environment without the need to BR
them. 

Seeing the suggestion that packagers should BR util-linux-ng triggered
my reaction. I feel that if more BR like that are needed "now", we
will see more path-based BR, too, and BR for fundamental tools like cpp,
gcc, gcc-c++, rpm-build, /bin/sh, ...
