But the fedora rpm-build should work for fedora. We don't exlude
Fedora features for other packaging strategies? We don't add Suse
defines in our packages either.

yum install rpm-build should install an rpmbuild version that works as expected 
for fedora. Currently, it does not because it is missing the
dependancy on redhat-rpm-config.
