So, https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=502226 was logged a

subdirs.

As others have mentioned, we run into this with Perl arch-specific packages quite a bit; it's hardly unique to Perl, however.  I have a packaging guideline up before the FPC as to how to handle these in a sane, consistent manner:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingDrafts/AutoProvidesAndRequiresFiltering

Ville was kind enough to cite this guideline's alternate incarnation as a feature, as well as the thread over on the packaging list about all this (citing here just for completeness):

http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.redhat.fedora.extras.packaging/5854
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/BetterRpmAutoReqProvFiltering

I'd hoped this would be discussed again at yesterdays FPC meeting, but there didn't seem to be one... (Right?)
