Any suggestions on how best to deal with the following problem....

perl-Test-AutoBuild is the module in CVS, it generates perl-Test-AutoBuild
main RPM containing most of the app, and then a number of sub-RPMs - one
per SCM system supported. The whole app is a 'noarch' since it is pure Perl
and not architecture dependant.

Unfortunately it looks like the 'darcs' SCM system is not available[1] on PPC
causing me to get spammed nightly about this broken dep. To be honest this
isn't really a problem that'll hit any users - since the darcs dependancy
is only in the sub-RPM, users can simply not install perl-Test-AutoBuild-darcs
on the PPC platforms. 

I can't do any '%if %{arch}' conditional stuff in the RPM since this is a
noarch package, and I don't want to make the package arch-dependant just
to get rid of the darcs package on PPC since there is nothing broken here
that will hit users. I really just want to make this nightly spam STFU.

Is there any way to block a noarch sub-RPM from the PPC repos ?
