Description of problem:
For me, it would be very useful when manking an upgrade of Fedora distribution to have an option that allows to exclude packages to upgrade. 
I have some packages installed from source, sometimes from CVS and I don't want to override my current installation with Fedora RPMs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Expected Results:  Have an option to choose the packages that wont be upgraded.

Installing things from source into /usr is a bad bad bad idea.  It's
highly recommended you install these under /usr/local or /opt so that
they don't interfere with the package managed applications. 
anaconda's not going to grow hacks to work around this.
