*IS* there any way to tell rpmbuild how to use something that was built from source, and *not* either installed via rpm, or built via rpmbuild? (In case you're wondering, php 5, and now I'm trying to build the php-java-bridge.)

A package doing nothing except enumerating 'Provides' does this -- see, eg,

ftp://ftp.owlriver.com/pub/mirror/ORC/dummy-xscreensaver/dummy-xscreensaver.spec

which was written to convince a installer that the 'xscreensaver' dependency was met for a thin client installation, where idle units were sucking up cycles needlessly
