I still don't see why you should 'extend' anything in puppet. You just 
need to configure your hosts properly so that you could use system 
package manager directly to install fusioninventory-package agent, 
through standard 'package' puppet type.

BTW, I just started using Suse openbuild system to produce RHEL and 
Centos fusioninventory packages, you can retrieve them from 
Beware, you need EPEL repositories configured beforehand for additional 
perl dependencies.
