How do I tell to Entropy that I'm providing a version of a package built by myself? I use a copy of Qt downloaded from git, compiled and installed in /opt/qt. This works perfectly even with binary packages installed with --nodeps (for instance, I use VLC installed with equo install vlc --nodeps).

With Portage I use the configuration file package.provided for this, and it actually works fine: if I want to emerge a package, portage does not install Qt, while equo does.

Sorry to resurrect this topic, but Entropy uses package.provided from portage ?
