Sounds like that cure is worse than the disease.  I'm not sure how important
leaving the example scripts executable is.  Here's the requirements that get
sucked in if the scripts are left executable

perl(constant)
perl(Data::Dumper)
perl(File::Spec)
perl(Gtk2::Gdk::Keysyms)
perl(Gtk2::GladeXML)
perl(Gtk2::SimpleList)
/usr/bin/perl

All of these are provided by packages which are required already, perl and
perl-Gtk2. So in this case we aren't really filtering anything significant.

I think as a compromise it might be most appropriate to add a README.FEDORA file
or similar which points out which additional packages are needed to run the
examples and that the non executable examples can be run as arguments to the
perl command instead of as stand-alone executables.

example FEDORA.README
To use the the examples in this directory you may need to install these
additional packages if they are not already present on your system:
<list of additional packages here, though in this case the list is empty>

The examples are shipped non-executable. To run the examples call them as
arguments to the perl command. For example:
>cd  /usr/share/doc/perl-Gtk2-GladeXML-1.005/examples
>perl progress.pl
