Unrelated, but I have to ask: what is the purpose of defining
name/version/release like this:

%define name    gtkmm
%define version 1.2.4
%define release 1mdk

and then:

Name:           %{name}
Version:        %{version}
Release:        %{release}

I've seen it in a number of spec files. 

And please no "Well, Mandrake sucks!".
