Accidental installation of a SuSE rpm.

I have an rpm, called blah-suse, that I only want installed on a SuSE platform. The rpm is in a repo that contains rpms with common prefixes, blah-<something>, that can be installed on RedHat, CentOS and SuSE.
Unfortunately, when you do a "yum install blah*", the SuSE package gets installed on the CentOS system.
Is there a way to prevent or even have the SuSE rpm installation skipped on a non-SuSE system?
I've tried the %pre tag. But there appears to be some pre-installation actions happening even before the %pre tag scripts are executed because in some installations there are conflicts. The conflicts are displayed and the %pre tag scripts are never executed.
Is there yet another tag (or something) where I could do a
if [ ! -f "/etc/SuSE-release" ]; then
echo "Not a SuSE system"
and cleanly and nicely exit the installation of the SuSE rpm?
