debuginfo dependancy problems

The debuginfo RPM pulls in dependancies from the perl files used to 
build the source, but those perl files make use of a private perl module 
as part of the build process. This perl module is of no use elsewhere 
but of course RPM picks this up as a dependancy, which shows its ugly 
head when you try to install the debuginfo RPM. The package in question 
is fuse-emulator- It asks for perl(Fuse).

I have few ideas on how to work around it, but I'm not particularly 
happy with any of them. I'm wondering if there's a tried and tested 
method for situations like this?
