The %dist macro is defined in /etc/rpm/macros.dist which (in Fedora)
belongs to the fedora-release package. I don't know if you should
install that package on rhel5. But you can define the %dist macro, or
any macro in your ~/.rpmmacros file. just add this line:
or something like that.
That would be:
(the leading dot is needed)
This macro is not defined in any existing EL-5 package, only in the
Fedora buildsystem, so unless you're building your packages using mock,
you'll need this local macro definition.
