When the package is finally build, it records this depedency because of that. Now this package requires libfoo to be installed. It's there but not registered with rpm! That's what I want to get rid of. Something like 'Unrequire' perhaps. Or another trick: IIRC, at some time taking the x bit from libs achieved that, but it's not working anymore since quite some time.
