You may extend the RPM spec file with an optional header like the
... yadda yadda yadda ...
With this in place, yum can now fetch jonas-examples-compiled-by-gcj
if is available.
Or maybe some way to have one package state that it "masks" another
# Anyone tries to install 'jonas-examples', they get this
# package instead.
# we need the real jonas-examples, because we are *adding*
# to it (binaries), without this line, this package would
