When I am creating the RPM using rpmbuild, I see the rpm provides But, in the require section I see

In the makefile of the project I refer

When I am trying to install the rpm it gives an error "Missing dependency:" even though it is packaged as a link file pointing to

So the problem is somehow RPM is not considering that I am packaging (which is a link to

However, I installed the rpm using --nodeps option and everything is working fine.

So, my question is how should I modify to avoid getting the error of missing dependency.
