a question abotu the .spec file


First off let me caveat this by saying that I came across this while trying to apply the skas patch to the 2.6.19.src.rpm for fc5.

I had previously installed other versions of the source rpm and now when trying to build a kernel rpm I'm having some issues.  It appears that when I prep the kernel sources (rpm -bp) the default .spec file tries to apply all config files in the current directory.

from line 1111 of kernel-2.6.spec:
# now run oldconfig over all the config files
for i in *.config
  mv $i .config
  Arch=`head -1 .config | cut -b 3-`
  make ARCH=$Arch nonint_oldconfig > /dev/null
  echo "# $Arch" > configs/$i
  cat .config >> configs/$i

since there are different .config files for each iteration of the kernel (i.e kernel-2.6.19-i586.config vs  kernel-2.6.18-i586.config ) should the .spec file be specific to the kernel that it's intended for?  I guess what I'm trying to say is, shouldn't there be a /SPECS/kernel-2.6.19.spec and a /SPECS/kernel-2.6.17.spec file?

In the file the it would look for *$(kversion)*.spec instead of *.config .  There might be a few other places in this file this would apply.

I'd be happy to submit a patch if you'd be interested in this change?
