 If you don't want to use RPMs features, why do you want to use it at
 all? configure;make install is much simpler and cleaner and if you
 want to package it you have to care about all the shit anyway....

 Please note: RPM is broken by design and you can't use one specfile
 for several systems because of the differences. Thus I don't see much
 sense in shipping them. Ok, it's cheap advertising for RedHat but apart
 from that....
