I've just run into the old avoiding dependency problems 
again, and (unless I'm overlooking something and there 
already is a fix for this) I guess we need to add a new tag for 

In this particular case, a package containing a /proc/self/fd/0 
-> /dev/stdin symlink is causing a dependency on 
/proc/self/fd/0, which (obviously) isn't provided by any 

The usual tricks of removing the executable bit doesn't 
apply here, so the best thing to do is %define __find_requires 
to a script that runs /usr/lib/rpm/find-requires |grep -v /proc

That, however, turns off the internal dependency generator 
and all the features it brings.

Any chance for a DoesntRequire: or FilterRequires: tag, or for 
calling the internal dependency generator from a 
__find_requires script?
