Yes but it is a hassle (with dependency:unpack and assembly etc).

As Hilco already stated, you should include that file in its own
artifact, then depend (or not) on it directly where it is needed,
instead of getting yourself into this difficult position with having
to pull it out when building some other artifacts that should not
include it.
