On older Red Hat systems (up to 7.2, I think) rpm was one executable used for 
building and installing.
Newer Red Hat systems, and Fedora, have two separate utilities: rpmbuild (for 
building) and rpm (for installing).
Apparently, the rpm task executes the rpm program, that is no longer capable of 
handling builds, hence it does not recognize the -bb option.
