Packages which are .php files only such as php-Smarty or

not say, then php >= current version (or no version) should be fine.
I have some php-pear packages which specifically indicate they need
php >= 4.2.0 some that say they need php >= 4.3.0.
Such Requires: do not make sense nowadays. The ability to require a
special program version was removed some time ago from rpm.
Now, you can require a special package version only and every PHP in
the supported Fedora Extras branches fulfills the requirements. Since
packaging guidelines are tending to minimize the explicitly written
(Build)Requires:, such unneeded versions should be removed too.
