[Freeswitch-dev] Compiling dependencies inline

I am aware that it has been discussed previously. I am aware that some of the 
libs have extra patches, and I am happy to build packages for them also that 
include the patches. I DO have freeswitch built in rpm form. (See for example 

The problem is what the FREESWITCH rpm does to the rest of the system when you 
have it available in a repository.

Take for example the error messages I posted. They state that when someone 
tries to install "grep" on their system (assuming that they dont have it) rpm 
considers freeswitch-snapshot as a possible providor of "pcre". Likewise if 
they want to install something that relies on spandsp or sqlite it will try 
to install freeswitch to satify the dependency..

Do you see the problem?
