rpm spec syntax change? (was Re: Fedora i386 rawhide rebuild in mock status 2008-06-01)

Some of these are my Perl packages:

perl-GD-SVG-0.28-4.fc9 (build/make) alexlan,perl-sig
perl-Graph-0.84-2.fc9 (build/make) alexlan,perl-sig
perl-SVG-2.37-1.fc9 (build/make) alexlan,perl-sig
perl-Text-Shellwords-1.08-4.fc9 (build/make) alexlan,perl-sig

All of these builds fail during %check:

Executing(%check): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.54169
+ umask 022
+ cd /builddir/build/BUILD
+ cd GD-SVG-0.28
+ unset DISPLAY
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.54169: line 26: syntax error near unexpected token `||' 

because of the following construct in the .spec file:

%check || :
make test

Was there a change made in rpm that makes builds fail with this
syntax?  I didn't see any announcement and, at least at one point in
time, I seem to recall that this was a legal and sometimes recommended
form.  (Although I should note that I did inherit the original .spec
files from an earlier contributor).

I assume that the solution is to just drop the "|| :" part?
