Cool! I didn't know you'd done that! I'll have a look at some stage.

Sure. But then that is true also of rpmdist. This is from Makefile.am in the 
top level dir.

rpmdist: dist
        if [ -z "`type -path rpmbuild`" ]; \
        then \
                RPMBUILD=rpm; \
        else \
                RPMBUILD=rpmbuild; \
        fi; $$RPMBUILD -ta $(PACKAGE)-$(VERSION).tar.gz ; saved_status=$$?; \
        exit $$saved_status
