Hi Paul,

I have worked on an open source project wherein I've created a target
for binary and source RPMs. You can study my top-level if
you want. The projects is at

The top-level file can be browsed in the SVN repository at:

You'll also want to look at my spec file in the top-level 'obs'
directory (obs stands for opensuse build service - which this method
does not in any way rely on). The spec file is processed by autoconf, to
replace variables such as project version, email address, website, etc.
Simple stuff. The real meat is in the top-level file however
where the additional top-level make targets, rpms, srpm, etc are defined.

This may not be the best way to do this, but it's one way that I've
cobbled together based on our needs in the project.

Good luck,
