This was a topic brought up by Tomas Kukosa some years ago: 

The only objection I saw was Jeff Morriss's

I think the point of RPM packaging is that everything is self-contained in:

1) the source tarball
2) (and) the RPM spec file

so what you're asking actually goes against how RPM is intended to be used.

but, even at the time Tomas asked that, it appears we were generating wireshark.spec from wireshark.spec.in, so I'm not 
sure why setting more things in the generated wireshark.spec than we were already setting would be a Bad Thing.

Well, at the time I think the only reason wireshark.spec was generated was so that we (and by "we" I really mean "Gerald") wouldn't have to change the version in wireshark.spec every time the our version changed.

Obviously I've been changing that over time so the .spec file is much more generated...

And, yeah, I'm starting to head in the direction of making the RPM follow ./configure's options: see r53607.

(If I hadn't been traveling and working so much recently I might have touched this stuff in the past month...)
