A (slightly) better way to do this is to include another source like the
attached from perl-libwww-perl and then in your spec file, put something

%define _use_internal_dependency_generator 0
# Provide perl-specific find-{provides,requires}.
%define __find_provides /usr/lib/rpm/find-provides.perl
%define __find_requires %{SOURCE10}

This will let you filter out what you want without having to specify
everything by hand.
