You haven't identified what RPM you are using: the following is
relevant to @rpm5.org.

There's any number of ways to remove dependencies. There is also no
reason to think that the dependencies aren't necessary but 

RPM generates Requires: dependency only for executable files.

So add to %install at end
	chmod -x %{buildroot}/path/to/somewhere/libfoo.so
and rpmbuild will not attempt to generate Requires:.

You can also do any of the following:
	1) add all the missing dependencies as Provides:
	2) add the missing dependencies to /etc/rpm/sysinfo/Providename
	3) filter the dependencies being generated
	4) build another package that has the Provides:

I recommend "chmod -x " as simplest: ymmv.

You run a few shell scripts giving them a target directory.  It writes a few config files that are easily modified.  This the whole thing should be pretty transportable, right?

Ick: Get rid of all this crapola: just "chmod -x" to disable dependency
generation on a per-file basis.

Again:
	If you are using yum, then you are unlikely to be using @rpm5.org code,
and you will have to find your own "politically correct" answer elsewhere.
