According to the changelog

* Mon Nov 28 2005 Mike A. Harris <mharris at redhat.com> 0.99.2-6
  - Added "Requires: cpp" as xrdb requires it for proper operation (#174302)

Which leads to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=174302
which is just plain horrid. But from a quick look it is common to all

What happens if we remove it? Well, it looks like Ubuntu tried, and
had to revert
