The coolkey.spec file specifies that pcsc-lite, ccid, and ifd-egate in

I can understand a requirement for pcsc-lite, but why ccid and
ifd-egate? My understanding is that these packages are installed to
provide drivers for different kinds of cards, and are optional,
depending on what kind of card drivers are required.
If I'm only going to use CCID cards, and not any E-gate cards, why
should I need to install ifd-egate package just to install coolkey?
Think along the lines of "I just installed RHEL5 and though I specified the
smart card stuff be installed, I can't use my smart card."
... however, I agree it probably should not be the CoolKey RPM that requires
it. If an RPM is going to require those, it should be pcsc-lite, because
pcscd uses the drivers not CoolKey, but neither should REQUIRE those drivers.
I would think that the better place would be in the repodata/comps-f7.xml file
it should have a smart card group... that sets the ccid and E-gate card READER
drivers to _default_.
maybe in comps-f8.xml. :)
