rpm -e failed dependencies

I am trying to uninstall the cyrus-sasl rpm so I can install from source the latest version of cyrus-sasl (on FC4, there are no rpms for the latest version of cyrus-sasl) so that I can install the latest version of openldap.

I get this error though:
error: Failed dependencies:

What what is the most correct way to "deal" with the failed dependencies?

There's a --nodeps option that you can use, e.g.

rpm -e --nodeps cyrus-sasl

Will that break the other applications?
