Installed (but unpackaged) file(s) found Error

I'm trying to restore my ability to package my CPAN Perl modules as rpm's. I actually have two questions, one regarding the subject line and the other regarding automatic Provides/Requires generation.

Regarding the error in the subject line, I am getting this because of perllocal.pod and .packlist files that are generated during the "make install" step. Previously, the following shell snippet in the %install section created a files-list that excluded these:

find $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/usr -type f -print |
        sed "s@^$RPM_BUILD_ROOT@@g" |
        grep -v perllocal.pod |
        grep -v "\.packlist" > ${DISTNAME}-${VERSION}-filelist
if [ "$(cat ${DISTNAME}-${VERSION}-filelist)X" = "X" ] ; then
    exit -1

Later, the line:

%files -f ${DISTNAME}-${VERSION}-filelist

provided the contents. (Note that ${DISTNAME} and ${VERSION} are macros expanded when the specfile is created.) This used to work, but now I get the above error. Any suggestions? This happens under rpm 4.1 on Red Hat 8, but not with 4.0.4 under Red Hat 7.1 (these are my build/test platforms).

The second question is about the Provides/Requires. I have the following lines:

Requires: perl >= 0:5.00503
Provides: perl-${DISTNAME} = ${VERSION}

or something very similar. But it still runs /usr/lib/rpm/find-provides and find-requires, which pull in a lot of junk I don't want, such as dependancy on perl(Apache) (which is optional), as well as many core Perl elements that are just redundant. How do I suppress this? (The provides/requires are also fairly noisy under 4.0.4, but not nearly as much as with 4.1.)
