Exactly.

Yes. All Fedora clones that are < 7 (CentOS 4,5 , RHEL 4,5 and Fedora
<=6) have this problem.

I have filed a bug report against this, and here is the reply (and bug
was closed)

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=355551

This is definitely a bug, but since this package is a must for building
packages (see below), there is nothing we can do.

I did not add it since redhat-rpm-config is a must per:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#head-4cadce5e79d38a63cad3941de1dadc9d25d67d30-2

(Of course I don't have to stick to Fedora guidelines for PGDG RPMs, but
still...)

But we can mention about that in README, etc.
