Hi all,

I am attempting to build an RPM with several "Requires" in the spec
file on a FreeBSD 8.2-RELEASE host.  The required binaries exist on
the host in the form of FreeBSD packages.  I thought, obviously
incorrectly, that if I had the path to the binary in
sysinfo/Providename that RPM would be able to identify that the
prerequisite exists.  Do I need to build and install a new RPM whose
spec file simply contains the "Provides" lines so that RPM will see
that the prerequisites indeed exist?
