This is what I ended up doing for the startup-notification support in
Openbox a long time ago. (It was disabled by default at upstream's
request, but a simple "--with startup_notification" to rpmbuild would
have enabled it). If you intend to go about this path, I recommend using
the %bcond_with and %bcond_without macros. The encapsulate the
%{?_with_foo} stuff and make it just a little bit simpler. :)
