Thanks. I'll look into this more.  It would only solve half of my
problem though because the needed library is only installed by an RPM
in half of our use cases.  In the other half it's built on the machine
as part of a manual and complicated third party install process that I
really don't want to mess with.

This would be similar to saying our package provides the dependencies
(via the Provides line), but I don't want to do that because it leaves
the possibility of other packages falsely assuming our package
provides something it doesn't.  Good idea though.
