[CentOS] Is there a way to _remove_ dependencies from an RPM built from source?

I can only do no. 3 -- take things as they are and try to make the best 
of it.

The uncoordinated rpm builders are Redhat and especially Intel.

Removing the build deps from runtime is possible. Only Google finds you 
a lot of nonsense. Plain bullshit, old stuff from yesteryear, or stuff 
from the future (CentOS wise).

To recap: I'm in the middle and still want to build a sensible rpm for 
openmpi with intel:

	%define _use_internal_dependency_generator 0
	%define __find_requires         %{nil}

Order is important. After that, '__find_requires' can even be made into 
a script, that falls back on '/usr/lib/rpm/redhat/find-requires' and 
filters out what is disturbing.

Hey! I love rpm! Whenever I feel real bad, I turn to rpm! (And then 
start to ask for help ...)
