Something like
        sed -n 's/^Requires: //p;/^%package/q' SPECFILE
will give the same information without requiring rpm.

Are there specfiles in every gnome package, though?

BTW, while testing the above, I found that gnome-core-1.0.4 has
        Requires: xscreensaver
in its spec file. This is wrong.
