That would be:   foo-1.0-0.fdr.0.X.s.rh9 => foo-1.0-0.fdr.X.rh9

  0.fdr.0.X.whatever  for pre-release versions
  0.fdr.X.whatever  for post-release versions

Actually there's a difference between adding a macro like %{disttag}
which would be undefined by default and could be set like

  rpmbuild --rebuild --define "disttag .rh80" foo.src.rpm

and hard-coding a disttag in the "Release:" field.  ;o)
