Just for the record as we don't seem to be needing this stuff: does not
matter, those could be implemented so that the SRPM would produce _only_
one binary "subpackage".
One spec file can produce packages like the following IIRC:

What about archs? We probably don't want i586 and i686 userland openafs
stuff, but just i386. Choices:
<insert AFS is special here>
1) Just ship userland as i586 and i686 too
2) Split userland and module SRPMS
3) Conditionalize whether to build the modules or the userland or both
based on some passed in build options
uses "--without modules" and "--without userland")
4) Hardcode our assumptions based on arch somewhere, eg. if target=i586
or i686, no userland will be built, and if target=i386, no modules
will be built
My openafs packages only build the userland packages if the current arch
you are building for is a basearch. Conversely, it does not build a
kernel module for the i386 arch.
Yes *sigh* my spec has a list of basearchs hard coded in.
This makes the most since, however it would be nice for RPM to provide
basearch information rather than hard coding it.
2) gets my vote.
Beleive me. This is very yucky. You really don't want to.
