If I rebuild a src.rpm with release 1.fc6 I expect that the release of
the resulted binary rpm's is 1.fc6, not 1.

I don't know the exact rationale, but at least it has its drawbacks.
In an automated build system, it would maybe be better to automatically
insert a

	%define dist .fc6

(whatever is applicable for the target distro) at the beginning of the
spec file, so that the resulting src.rpm is not dependent on an
externally defined %dist.
