Been there, done that, got paid for it. SuSe 9.x had this problem: the
kernel SRPM's had a completely bogus build requirement that was not
actually required, it was some weird SuSE internal tool of
the-world-knew-not-what-use. Replacing it with a completely bogus,
empty, and locally built  RPM, simply to solve the dependency, worked.
