Description of problem:
nano-1.2.1-2 in Rawhide has:
BuildPrereq:    ncurses-devel gpm-devel

[temp1@build-rh80 BUILD]$ pwd
[temp1@build-rh80 BUILD]$ cd nano-1.2.1/
[temp1@build-rh80 nano-1.2.1]$ grep -r "gpm" *
[temp1@build-rh80 nano-1.2.1]$
BuildRequires gpm-devel seems unnecessary.  No "gpm" string anywhere in the
tarball, and build is successful without gpm-devel installed.  Perhaps remove
gpm-devel BuildRequires?

This doesn't matter much for this particular report, but Prereq and BuildPrereq
are deprecated in rpm.  They still work though.

I believe it was added because ncurses-devel doesn't require gpm-devel, even
though it's linked against it. But it doesn't make much sense now. Removed, will
be in future builds.
