	Sure, but ldd shows the entire dependency tree resolved for that system
(surely), so - possibly removing the -llinc fixes 1 half of th eproblem.

	Ah - this is true; so, the trick is to bludgeon rpmbuild into not doing
this; I believe you need to do:

%define __find_requires somewhere/bin/nothing
%define __find_provides somewhere/bin/nothing
%define _use_internal_dependency_generator 0

	Where somewhere/bin/nothing is:

filelist=`sed "s/['\"]/\\\&/g"`
exit 0

	Or somesuch; and then add manual dependencies on sensible things.
