No, the dependency exists both in the RPM package and the
dynamically-linked binary itself. I found, the last time I checked
however, that it uses no symbols from, so this should

# rpm -ivh --force afaapps-2.7-1.i386.rpm
# ln -s /lib/

Caveat; this is very hacky, not recommended, and, of course, Your
Mileage May Vary :)
