I would like to debug this.  That would be much easier if there was
some way to tell the script to not "rm $logfile" when it is done.
I'll cheat and edit the script for now, but please add an option to do
that.

Okay, cheating done.  The gstreamer-devel dependency is being pulled
in because /usr/lib/rpm/gstreamer.prov is being opened.  Since
rpmbuild itself does that, it appears that the script will tell you
that gstreamer-devel is a BuildRequires for every package, right?

This probably explains why the script is also telling me that both
perl and python are BuildRequires for my Java package.
