I've decided in the interim to add the contributed files in %doc.
Removing the executable bits on the .pl/.cgi files is enough to keep
RPM's dependency handler from picking up the Perl deps - I'm not certain
if they can all be satisfied from FC / FE RPMs alone. This I'll look
into and put up any missing packages for review if necessary/desirable.

The above scriptlet is helpful and might come in useful down the track
if I want something a little more fine-grained. Thanks :-)

Cheers,
Michael.
