I want get rid of them because when I install the RPM, it fails for 'failed 
dependencies' for each of those *.so.* files.  Yet those files exist on the 
the rpm depencies are stored in a db. Rpm don't search it on the filesystem. What is the result of rpm -q --provides on the deps ? If nothing probably the files was not installed via rpm, so rpm doesn't know nothing about it.

Well, the actual question is: Why do you want to get rid of them? If your 
package actually uses Python, a shell and glibc the requirements should stay. 
RPM does check dependencies on real world data and not (only) by package name as 
you may know from deb.

If you want single executable not to generate requirements (like example 
scripts) you can remove the executable bit in the install root with chmod.
