    i am trying to build a rpm which include some libraries.  these
libraries conflicts with distribution's rpms, so I want to exclude

  at first I " __provides_exclude" all the files with my rpm, then I
found the rpm need them itself when install.

  next  I tried to "__requires_exclude" all the files also. but then
some necessary external required libraries are skipped when install.

  finally I found what I really want is find out all the rpm
"provides" lists, then "__provides_exclude"  and  "__requires_exclude"
the lists.

 I search the email-list but can not find a similar marco for such
things. the suggestion years ago is manually find out the names and
exclude them.

I wonder with recent rpm, is it possible to write a macro, which will
"__find_provides" and the feed the list as regex to
"__provides_exclude" and "__provides_exclude"?

thanks a lot for help!!
