I didn't see this problem specifically addressed in the change log but is this problem fixed in rpm-4.6.0-0.rc1.5?
Its trivial to test whether the problem is fixed.
Install any *.src.rpm (I usually use the time pkg as a Guinea pig)
If the build fails, the problem has not been addressed.
Thanks for bringing it down to my level Jeff. :D It's definitely still a problem. Adding the FutureFeature keyword since it's not a bug but this probably needs to be addressed in the near future.

Let's get one thing straight here: FESCo does not get to dictate what rpm implements.
That aside, fixed in rawhide now.
rpm-4.6.0-2.fc10 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.
rpm-4.6.0-2.fc10 has been pushed to the Fedora 10 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
