[Rpm-maint] How to change a file name that rpmbuild creates?

I use the gnu tools to maintain my projects for consistancy and have a .spec
file for each of the various applications.  It all seemed to work fine,
until I decided to move my perl modules to a common place and call them
Local.  That caused me to end up with a bunch of dependencies like
"perl(Local::xxx)".   So I was able to dummy up a spec file to install those
modules that would satisfy the requirements, but I also ended up with files
with parens in them.  I don't like to have to deal with special characters
in file names for obvious reasons.  Is there a way to specify an output file
name in a spec file?

I know I can always rename it, but I'd like to keep everything as standard
as possible.

Maybe I could alias the dependency?  I've noticed that some perl modules
are distributed as rpms without the strange characters.

I didn't specify the "requirement" for those modules, apparently rpmbuild
dug them out from somewhere.

Anyway if someone could please point me in the right direction to get this
resolved, I'd appreciated it.
