Description Andreas J. Bathe 2000-01-06 13:57:12 EST
When inserting the packager flag into ~/.rpmrc (or even /etc/rpmrc)
rpm responds with "bad option 'packager' at ~/.rpmrc:<lineno>";

Rpm-3.0.x accomplishes the same task (in your case) by putting in
~/.rpmmacros (or /etc/rpm/macros):
    %packager	whatever

Ditto for signature configuration. Here's what I have in my ~/.rpmmacros:
    #%_signature    pgp
    %_pgp_name      Jeff Johnson <jbj@redhat.com>
    %_pgp_path      /home/devel/jbj/.pgp

    %_signature     gpg
    %_gpg_name      Jeff Johnson (ARS N3NPQ) <jbj@redhat.com>
    %_gpg_path      /home/devel/jbj/.gnupg
