I'd also recommend creating a file called .rpmmacros in your home
directory, and also for your root user if you're so inclined. the
contents of the file should be

%_query_all_fmt %%{name}-%%{version}-%%{release}.%%{arch}

This makes the effect listed in the rpm command above permenant, and
is quite helpful especially with multi-arch systems.
