Automatically generating needed requires for julia

The julia language loads libraries at run time by using the .so 
filename.  We work around this in the julia package by symlinking the 
needed sonames into %{_libdir}/julia/, e.g.:

for lib in arpack cholmod dSFMT git2 fftw3_threads gmp mprf openlibm
openspecfun pcr2-8 umfpack
   soname=$(objdump -p %{_libdir}/lib${lib}.so | awk '$1 == "SONAME" { 
print $2}')
   ln -s ../${soname} %{buildroot}%{_libdir}/julia/lib${lib}.so

Now we want to automatically generate the needed rpm requires, e.g.:

What I came up with is a rpm-julia-hooks package that julia would BR 
that would use rpm fileattrs to generate these.  This feels a bit clunky 
having a separate package just to do this task.

Does anyone else have any ideas?
