While I don't like to see fedora-release updated so late in the cycle, it'd be
nice if we could provide /etc/rpm/macros.dist like in F-7/Rawhide

I've struck an issue where by '%if 0%{?fedora} > 4 || 0%{?rhel} > 4' gets
evaluated as 'if 0 > 4 || 0 > 4' due to the lack of %{?fedora} been defined.

It'd be nice if a fix could be provided somehow.

For FC6 you should be able to install the buildsys-macros package that comes
from the buildsys repo used by plague and mock.
