[Distutils] Changes in RPM affecting Distutils

I just tried building an RPM using the bdist_rpm command to setup.py,
and the rpm process complained.  Appearantly newer versions of rpm use
a separate build process, rpmbuild, and don't provide sufficient
command line compatibility by default.

I'm using rpm 4.2 on a RedHat 9 system.

Has anyone looked into fixing this in Distutils yet?
