That's really odd. I make *lots* of RPMS, and have yet to see RPM
make a mistake on dependencies like you are seeing. Is the failed
dependency for "sh" or "/bin/sh"? Is the dependency a declared one,
or is this one of RPM's automatic dependencies?

Have you tried rebuilding your RPM database to see if that corrects
the problem?
