Anyway, I think the answer is: RPM won't complain at install time, near
as I can tell, but if you do rpm -V later you'll see "T" (mtime
mismatch) flags.

...and from elsewhere in the thread, unless you install carefully
(install -p) it's not just generated files that'll mismatch but even
header files that were copied into a devel rpm.
