I received an email with:

This has never before been an issue. In fact, according to the guidelines at

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#Requires

I am not supposed to manually add libraries, as rpm should pick them up per default.
Hence, my package only includes a BuildRequires: tcl-devel and not a Requires: tcl.

Did this behaviour change, or is the above script hit a false positive?

No, the behavior did not change, and the above script did not hit a false positive.

Recently the version of Tcl was upgraded from 8.4 to 8.5. This came with a corresponding name change for the .so: libtcl8.4.so is no longer available, but libtcl8.5.so is.

To fix, you just need to bump the release and rebuild your package. The rebuild will find the new libtcl8.5.so and set the requirement appropriately.
