Obviously 3 (from 3.21) > 1 (from 1.dist) so I guess your approach would work. But are you willing to loose the "3.21" from the name ?

Yeah, replacing 3.2.1 by a single number and a disttag has my preference.

I'm a bit confused about the history of this package. I think it's an old Fedora Extras package imported in RHEL at one time.
Here's the Changelog:

If someone still has that old package installed on RHEL4, and I make my version 1.1.1%{?dist}, my version will be older. Maybe another solution is to keep the same version as on RHEL5 (and not use a disttag). But that way, I can't update my package or I'll break the upgrade path...
