That's always been a problem. A bigger problem is that just about every
distribution has changed their packaging in some way over time. At one
point, eg, we were a close copy of the fedora packaging (back before you
were maintaining it) and slowly over time it diverged.

I see a few choices that are acceptable:

1) provide our own list of packages and add conflicts lines
2) provide multiple spec files that better track the remote systems
(possibly autobuilt from a single base template but split differently
to match the different systems).

We got tired of people just trying to use the base config and
complaining that it didn't work.

Maybe something that says:

# please run "snmpconf -g basic_setup"
