Description of problem:
It's sometimes useful to leave the resultant $RPM_BUILD_ROOT in place, especially so one can check the contents of manufactured files via sed scripts, or ownership, permissions, etc.
Skipping the %clean phase would allow this.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Reassigned to rpm which is where rpm-build is built from. However, is there a reason that something like rpmbuild -bi is not sufficient for you?

Because we'd also want the -bb phase done (the actual binary packaging).
There's a --clean option... why not a --noclean option?
Implemented upstream now.
rpm >= 4.10.1 in rawhide and F18 supports --noclean (and --nocheck). I've no plans to backport anything new to 4.9.x though, so closing.
