Subject: DocBook to Microsoft Help File - all linked files being included

I've just been working on a document and I find some behaviour I'd like to stop.
I'm writing some instructions for a process.
Part of the instructions concerns software to install and I've included <ulink> elements pointing to a selection of zip files.
This is all fine when generating a single html file or a pdf.  The resulting files are reasonable in size and the links are genuine links on the web, or links to one of our local servers.
However, when I generate a Microsoft compiled html help file, all the zip files are included in the resultant chm file.  Which as a result is very much larger than the other two formats (16Mb against a few hundred Kb).  I would like to stop this happening.
Of course the whole point of a chm file is that it is a mini web-site all in one file, but for some items, which start off as DocBook <ulink> elements I'd like this not to happen.
Can I put anything in the DocBook source to stop this happening ?
Or is there something I can do when calling hhc ?
