/bin/rpm on a recent Fedora can not build packages, it can only do the
things necessary on a running system: install etc.; there is an extra
package "rpm-build" with a /usr/bin/rpmbuild program that is used to build

IIRC i once changed configure to complain if you have a /bin/rpm that
cannot build and no rpmbuild, perhaps that check bitrotted...

[ i have no idea why we use a "patched" epm, or whether an unpatched epm
would work ]
