Using something like:

%if "%{_vendor}" == "suse"
%if %sles_version == 10
%define _build_name_fmt %_arch/sles-name-%{version}.%{release}.%_arch.rpm
%endif
%else
%if %_vendor == "redhat"
%define _build_name_fmt %_arch/redhat-name-%{version}.%{release}.%_arch.rpm
%endif
%endif

was problematic and results in behavior like having 2 debuginfo rpms in
RedHat instead of 1 normal rpm and 1 rpm with debuginfo.

Why don't you recommend using "%package"?
