I guess its been a while since I've needed to build an RPM. So how does
one go about making a home rolled RPM for opensuse these days??

I guess it boils down to writing a .spec file, i.e. really building your
own rpm. It isn't that hard, really!

Not for you programmers, but it is for us plain users.

I don't care about the produced rpm, I'm not going to distribute it anywere; I simply want to fool the rpm database into thinking there is such rpm installed and stop yast from wanting to install the official one I removed to install mine instead. And it makes life so much easier when I want to remove what I installed.
