Prelink + packaging proprietary software

it seems that rpmbuild runs prelink nowadays, since in Fedora 15 I have
run into a problem that I haven't seen before when packaging
proprietary 3rd party software.

The error is

prelink: (file name here) at least one of file's dependencies has
changed since prelinking

The cause of the problem is probably that the files in question have
been compiled with a proprietary compiler.

Does anyone know what causes the error and how I can get around it?
