Paul Eggleton - Jan. 25, 2013, 11:28 a.m.
We don't want the perl module dependencies being added to each package
by rpmdeps because it causes too many problems when the modules aren't
available at install time (since they get added in do_package which is
too late for the build system to ensure they are available), and it
appears that the perl dependency gathering isn't working reliably in any
case judging by how they are detected on some build hosts and not

This was being disabled previously but it seems like the macros moved
to a different file at some point and nobody noticed; thus make sure we
disable the macros in all RPM macro files.

Should fix [YOCTO #3699].
