I don't understand how the two are even related.  The spec file is built to 
reference the files from the build tree.  So you run make to generate the 
executables, then you run 'make rpm' to invoke rpm to package those binaries up 
(along with all the other necessary non-executable goodies).

I've had to build native packages for many different flavours of UNIX over the 
years, and never once have I had to take measures like this.
