PIL itself doesn't know about RPMs, it only looks for the include files 
which the "-devel" packages install for you.

It might be that the RPMs for other packages would look for the -devel 
packages before even starting, but that would mean you would not be 
able to create a "lightweight" PIL without installing a bunch of 
unnecessary stuff (or telling the RPM build process to ignore the 
missing "-devel" packages).
