I'm pretty sure rpath checking is done in koji, due to the macros
install in redhat-config-rpm.
I don't believe so. We've been bitten by this recently. x86_64 builds
will succeed in Koji but fail locally. This lead to the incorrect
conclusion the problem was on the local machine because Koji builds are
the gold standard reference thus the local machine had to have a
problem. As we learned a few days ago the Koji build had the exact same
rpath issue, however it wasn't flagged as a build error like it was
locally. The red herring was an unfortunate waste of time because we
were looking for the problem in the wrong place.
