How do I make debian think that it has a package intalled, when it has
been compiled and installed rather than from a package? I know I can
force a package to be installed using dpkg, but I want dselect and
gnome-apt to recognise it.

My particular example is that I have the GL libraries installed for my
nvidia card, but packages requiring GL always want me to install the
debian GL and mesa packages.
