[Freeswitch-dev] Compiling dependencies inline

Hi Guys

Here is the result of building a freeswitch package with all of its 
dependencies inline. It confuses the hell out of rpm when you go an try to 
build OTHER packages that rely on those dependencies which are already 
provided by standard packages:

Fedora_Extras_5  i586  expansion error 
have choice for libpcre.so.0 needed by grep: freeswitch-snapshot pcre
have choice for libsqlite3.so.0 needed by rpm-libs: freeswitch-snapshot sqlite
have choice for libsqlite3.so.0 needed by rpm: freeswitch-snapshot sqlite
have choice for libsqlite3.so.0 needed by rpm-build: freeswitch-snapshot 

Now, I CAN work around this by manually specifying preferences for each of 
these packages in ALL of my other builds but this is really bad karma and 
requires me to screw around with almost 50 other packages just to have the 
pleasure of building freeswitch. ick..

Please please fix the build so that it will use external libs if they are 
available. I will happily package any external libs that are required (infact 
I already have done so) and can apply patches to any that need them.
