As someone else said, at the very least you need to edit the spec to define
a vendor. IMO the better way is to setup mock and use it to (re)build all
of your rpms. That way you can for the most part, use the fedora specs out of
the box.

I have numerous rpms that are not found in CentOS that are in fedora. Most of
them rebuild without modification in mock on CentOS.

Hope this helps.
