Hello,

while creating a package, I renamed in the %install section a bunch of 
manpages by changing their extension from e. g. 1 to 1ssl. RPM-5.1.6 
creates an implicit dependency for each renamed manpage.

I got curious on what (1) causes the dependency generation (it is not a 
(symbolic|hard) link, just a regular file), what (2) actually triggers the 
dependency generation and how (3) to avoid it.

I tried digging through the source code, but I got completely lost. So I 
wrote this message to the ML.

Thanks in advance!
