%{with name} expands to 0 (if package is built with "name" feature)
or 1 (otherwise) - so it can be used in %if ... %else ... %endif

%{with_name} is defined in the first case and not defined (at all)
in the second - so you can use in %{with_name:something} statements
(which mean "something" is used only if with_name is defined).

%{with_name:something} syntax is useful for single words/instructions/
%if %{with name}
is better for longer jobs.
