Hmm, could you elaborate what these are?  glib2, libattr, pam, libselinux and
libuser sound like things that are pretty hard to get rid of in a functional FC
setup.

Fine with me.  rpm doesn't have an epoch so that problem doesn't currently exist
in FC/RHEL, but the versioned deps would help people who try to rebuild this for
earlier distro versions or RHEL.  (Some kind of support for those is sort of
implied elsewhere in the package, eg. smart-fedora-setup.)

Plain requires is fine for install time.  And at install time it wouldn't matter
anyway as long as all dirs are owned.

Even if postun may work with the erase ordering, I wouldn't count on that abuse
(adding a dependency for a %postun script which doesn't exist).  The only way to
properly fix this is in rpm.  It isn't known to hurt though, so if you insist on
keeping it, not a blocker.

smart-fedora-setup doesn't appear to do anything useful when run as non-root,
maybe move it to /usr/sbin?
