How to avoid _ACL files

I am having HP-UX 11.11 v1(PA-RISC2.0) system. I am running the following swpackage command to create a depot.

swpackage -x follow_symlinks=true \
-x compression_type=gzip \
-x compress_cmd=/usr/contrib/bin/gzip \
-x compress_files=true \
-x run_as_superuser=false \
-x logdetail=true \
-x uncompress_files=false \
-x write_remote_files=true \
-x reinstall_files=true \
-x package_in_place=false \
-x target_type=directory \
-s sample.psf @ /var/tmp/sample.depot

When depot gets created, I found following files like _ACL, _INFO, _INDEX are getting created. I wanted to avoid these files. hence I used "-x create_target_acls=false" option but it fails stating that this can be used only by super-user.

My Question is, how to avoid these files being part of a depot?
[Note: when i run the same command on another HP-UX 11.11v1 server, these files are not getting created]
