I'm wondering if there's a way to inject virtual packages into apt. For my
part, I'm running a HTTP server that I've compiled and installed from
source, and because apt doesn't know about it, it wants to install Apache or
some other package providing the <httpd> virtual for such simple packages as
gitweb or wordpress. I would like to tell apt that the system has <httpd>
installed. Is there any mechanism for me to do so?

You can use "equivs".

Would you look at that. Thank you very much!
