Its not hard, see the trivial 3 line patch to a spec file to handle
to a wider variety of systems.
But that misses the context of Joe Orton's reply in the bugzilla RFE
The rawhide *.spec is targeted at rawhide, not everywhere, because of

is "suicidal" or "RPM sux!", there's a perfectly obvious engineering
why the RFE was declined.
