Description of problem:
The RPM for twm depends on the X server (xorg-x11).
Twm is an X client that can be used with any server, even
a non-local one, so this dependency is not warranted.

The situation creates problems for me, because the X
server has a whole bunch of other dependencies, so I
really don't want to install it.  I am using --nodeps with
the twm RPM right now, but that creates other problems,
e.g. it breaks aptnotify.

- Remove "Requires: %{name}, %{name}-libs = %{version}-%{release}"
from twm
  subpackage, as the libs twm is linked to should automatically be
picked up
  by rpm "find-provides", and xterm moved to a separate package a long
  ago, so both of these should no longer be needed. (#123423)
