For example:

$ grep pcre appliance/initramfs.fedora-11.x86_64.supermin.hostfiles
./lib64/libpcre.so.0.*
./lib64/libpcre.so.0
./usr/lib64/libpcrecpp.so.0.*
./usr/lib64/libpcrecpp.so.0
./usr/lib64/libpcreposix.so.0
./usr/lib64/libpcreposix.so.0.*
./usr/bin/pcretest
./usr/bin/pcregrep

It shouldn't matter at all for your appliance builder.

IMHO, you should just wildcard everything and drop the file dependencies.
Much less work for you, much fewer broken dependencies, just a small risk of
breakage which isn't that big a deal (much better than having the package
uninstallable every other day as it is now).
