Detecting version in a SPEC file


I'm refactoring a package (perl module) that needs to build on CentOS4/RHEL4 
and FC6/RHEL5.  This package depends on GnuPG, whose version changed from 
FC3 -> FC6.  The change from gpg 1.2 to gpg 1.4 actually means that the tests 
(%check) will fail unless I use a different set of test results for the two 

I would like to test (in a %if %endif block) which version of GnuPG is 
installed on the system.  I could run an "rpm --queryformat" command to get 
the version, but I was hoping that there is a better way, since rpmbuild 
already can check versions of installed packages for BuildRequires.
