Yes, sorry. I found that I don't have time for such software. I now
using transmission client instead rtorrent. Since even I tried many
patches from other distros.. they not worked for me and upstream
"almost" dead.

As about why dependency so strict.
rtorrent needs in library libtorrent
rtorrent needs in library libtorrent-devel

For example rtorrent binary can fail to work with
 - old library.
 - library from another port. (-devel).
Since library version never changes thats why it in build_depends.
That's what I know.
