where have you defined it and are this really TABs?

the following works since years on my build-machines to call "rpmbuild"
batch-scripts as builduser followed by a "yum localupdate" before the
next package is built to make sure that it uses the libraries from before

hopefully this is not broken in F16

## Allow root to run any commands anywhere
root    ALL=(ALL)       ALL
builduser   ALL=(ALL)       NOPASSWD: ALL
