You can skip BR if it is required by rpm-build. But if it is
required only by rpm-build-tools you still need BR.

poldek:/all-avail> desc -r rpm-build | grep tar --color
warn: rpm-build: ambiguous name
Requires:       /bin/bash, /bin/id, /bin/sh, /bin/sh, awk, bzip2, chrpath >= 0.10-4, config(rpm-build) = 4.5-43, cpio, diffutils, elfutils, file >= 4.17, fileutils, findutils, gcc >= 5:3.4, glibc-devel, grep, gzip, libc.so.6, libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.0), libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.1), libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.2), libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.3), libpopt.so.0, libpopt.so.0(LIBPOPT_0), libpthread.so.0, libpthread.so.0(GLIBC_2.0), librpm-4.5.so, librpm-4.5.so(LIBRPM_0), librpmbuild-4.5.so, librpmbuild-4.5.so(LIBRPMBUILD_0), librpmio-4.5.so, librpmio-4.5.so(LIBRPMIO_0), make, patch, rpm-build-macros >= 1.514, rpm-utils = 4.5-43, rtld(GNU_HASH), sed, sh-utils, tar, textutils, xz

So you don't have to add BR: tar.
