See http://bugs.xiph.org/show_bug.cgi?id=219 for info on how to remove
auto-generated dependencies. 

Btw, there are two other sites that provide redhat-7.3 vorbis packages. My
site over at http://noa.tm/vorbis/rpms/ (where I also rebuild xmms and sox
with the new libvorbis[file|enc] dependencies) and Eric Seppanen's packages
over at http://www.reric.net/linux/vorbis/ (he solves the problem with
broken dependencies on upgrade by providing a libvorbis-compat package)
