[BioC] How to include external applications in package vignette code?

I have created an R package that makes extensive use of external applications (BLAST and MUSCLE) in a typical workflow. I have written a sweave document that could be used as a vignette but which I currently 'build' separately because it makes use of local installations of the two external applications. Is there any way that I could get this package into Bioconductor with a vignette that won't build until the user installs these applications? Or should I just sent it to CRAN?
