i have no problem it being in the spec file, but surely a better place rather 
than the description... it's not like users really need to know which compile 
flags there is or what you can do with rpmbuild...

i'm just saying this info should be moved out to comments in spec file, and 
change the description to state what exactly is compiled in...
