When you manually compile and install a program, it doesn't appear in the RPM
(or deb) database.  That's one problem with using a package system.  :(

I believe that you can tell RPM "I have these packages installed on my system
already, don't bug me about then" (I think I read that as part of the Linux
>From Scratch handbook).  You can also tell rpm to ignore missing dependencies.
(I believe it's "rpm -i --nodeps foo.rpm", but check the man page)

This is a problem that affects all binary distributions, and I can't think of
any good solution.  :(
