I suggest you take the debugger and skip to the end of 
finalize_options() in bdist_rpm.py. I don't see any magic in
that routine which would reset .use_rpm_opt_flags, so the
magic has to be built into some other part of distutils ;-)

What Thomas suggest *should* work. If it doesn't, then
something is wrong and we have a bug.
