One solution I've seen is to have two repositories.  One repository contains the open-source core product, which can be packaged and installed on its own.

The other repository has the proprietary component.  To build the proprietary component, you must have built the open source component and perhaps also have installed it.

This solution isn't without its problems, but it's probably the cleanest solution I've seen to the problem it was meant to solve.
