There are probably a lot of macros defined there, some possibly for quite
esoteric situations. I think at best it would warrant a Recommends: or even a
Suggests: there for things it refers to in macro definitions.

To be honest I don't see coreutils ever disappearing from the minimal buildroot
but I'd rather not make it a special case, and specify a buildreq for
everything I explicitly use in a spec file.
