while i didn't actually solve the previous problem, i've hit similar 
problem with making change to gem_helper.rb

the change should be versioned, so .spec files could use it, it being 
built from rpm.spec means the dep should be rpm version specific, which 
i do not like:
1. were in middle of 5.4.15 -> 5.4.17 change
2. the change isn't in rpm code at all
3. some (qboosh?) still uses his own rpm build (rpm4.5?)
4. pld-ac also uses rpm4.5, altho it's probably not affected for these 
two cases (python and ruby)

so, move all those *prov* packages from rpm.spec to rpm-build-macros 
these are never going to be using upstream files, we always patch them. 
(and this doesn't prevent time to time submitting them to upstream)
