I've been thinking about that, primarily for the purpose of ensuring 
correct MD5 sums in the info file. Then, if I had the tarball name, it 
would be easy to skip adding it to the submission archive.
Unfortunately, determining the source code tarball name does not look 
like an obvious task. Still, I might try to do it one day.

Anyways, I know it's not the solution you asked for, but sbosubmit list 
the submission archive contents before the actual submission happens.
So you can visually inspect the submission archive for the presence of 
any unwanted files.
I used to do it before I created sbosubmit, that is I was looking inside 
the tarred SlackBuild directory, to see if there aren't any problematic
