Because it's looking in its own database, not in some completely
arbitrary part of the filesystem. That's what package systems do, they
resolve dependancies using their own registry of installed software and
available repos. You can't simply install some stuff with rpm and other
stuff with make+install or 'tar xvf ...' or whatever, and expect it to
work.
