You are exactly right, Akemi, thanks. I did not add it to the
original .config because it was there already. However, after copying
the file back and forth a couple of times it seems to be missing now. So
it must be added there just before final "rpmbuild -bb ..." command? 
The "#i386" line is still in .config.old but that probably isn't very
helpful at all...
I'll try again later this evening. Thanks again!
