Use --nodeps if you want to do -bp and don't want to be bothered by
the BR's.  IMHO, it is ok that all (but one (*)) rpmbuild commands
check for the BR's, as you can override this during development (even
by commenting out the BR's).

(*)  Even rpmbuild -bs (only built src.rpm) fails whne the BR's are
     not satisfied (or has this been fixed now?).  This is useless.
