There's some examples here for filtering dependencies, albeit for perl, 
it may be possible to adapt it or figure out something similar for sonames


There's also

AutoReqProv: no

which can be used to disable automatic dependency processing entirely 
but obviously any necessary dependencies would need to be specified 
manually. This is the 'sledgehammer  to crack a nut approach' I guess.
