Description of problem:
The description of kernel-source rpm still says "These source files are needed
to build most C programs, since they depend on the constants defined in the
source code." which obviously isn't true anymore (and hasn't been in a long time)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -qi kernel-source

Actual Results:  [pmatilai@chip local]$ rpm -qi kernel-source
Name        : kernel-source                Relocations: (not relocateable)
Version     : 2.4.18                            Vendor: Red Hat, Inc.
Release     : 0.8                           Build Date: Fri 22 Mar 2002 07:31:44
Install date: Sat 30 Mar 2002 08:51:57 PM EET      Build Host: daffy.perf.redhat.com
Group       : Development/System            Source RPM: kernel-2.4.18-0.8.src.rpm
Size        : 112382750                        License: GPL

Summary     : The source code for the Linux kernel.
Description :
The kernel-source package contains the source code files for the Linux
kernel. These source files are needed to build most C programs, since
they depend on the constants defined in the source code. The source
files can also be used to build a custom kernel that is better tuned
to your particular hardware, if you are so inclined (and you know what
you're doing).

Expected Results:  Well.. as somewhat more accurate description would be nice :)
