3. This thread gave me a few more tips about building rpms (I hadn't realized
that 'make rpm' was available).

Make rpm is of course only available if the maintainer of a software
package has implemented that. I'm not sure where I stole the idea from,
but gmfsk has it. So does xlog and I think at least hamlib and dream.
Anyway, it's not a standard feature as such.

Nonetheless, it is a nice feature which should be encouraged (as is having debian/rules in the tarball for building a .deb)--much nicer than using checkinstall.
