It strikes me that with things like this, and others (e.g. requiring
CUPs on a single, headless, remote web server), that we should be
developing some strategies to remove *USELESS* dependencies.  Even if
that means an extra "hack" repo with various dummy RPMs to satisfy RPM
demands for files that will never be used, or to supply the bare minimum
files it wants for a dependency, without the rest of the package.
