I did this with sendmail on a RH box (partially because I needed a 
couple of compile-time options that weren't included in the RPM), until 
I needed to install a package where the RPM included sendmail in the 
dependencies list.  (And it wasn't until some time later that I 
discovered RPM's "force" option).

At that point, I took the time to learn how to install sendmail by 
building from RPM source.
