it is messy as you need to look at distro line i 3 ways
- trunk (no changes)
- ac branch
- and now ac bcond

and i bet it will kick our asses sooner or later. people will abuse the
bcond thing. moreover, it already happens with python-psycopg2.spec to
build psycopg with python 2.4. we will end up with mess.
