rpmbuild could have tried realpath first:

# rpm -ql perl | grep -E '^/bin/perl'

# realpath /bin/perl

# rpm -ql perl | grep -E '^/usr/bin/perl'

I usually try to fix bugs in latest versions and then backport fixes back to older releases.
In this case, the bug was accidentally closed by F18 update and since it's closed it
went out of my sight. Also I missed you comment. I'm sorry. Feel free to reopen
a bug if you think that an issue is not fixed.

Here's an update
