That's one problem caused by RPM.  It considers the dependencies even if
they aren't in packages.  You can safely install with the --nodeps option,
you just won't get the LAME plugin.  It'll fail quietly at -register time.

Eventually we'll have all the plugins in seprarate package(s), so you
don't have to worry about depedencies as much.
