If you're trying to build rpms for the equivalent of the released 
sdist's and eggs, then yes, you definitely should.  If you look at the 
setup.cfg files in all ETS projects, they all  append build tags of 
'.dev' and force the svn revision to be tagged on, UNLESS you trigger 
the release alias or explicitly specify "egg_info -RDb".

Nope, not at all.   We have a number of other projects using 
numpy.distutils and setuptools together in ETS.

Excellent.  Thanks!
