Yes, I noticed your package ;). The problem is that this is kind
of hopeless. There's simply no way for the build service code
to deal with macros that call external commands. So if your
specfile contains things like

%define is_suse %(test -e /etc/SuSE-release && echo 1 || echo 0)
%define is_fedora %(test -e /etc/fedora-release && echo 1 || echo 0)
%define fedora_release %(rpm -q --queryformat '%{VERSION}' fedora-release)
%define fedora_version %(echo "%fedora_release" | tr -d '.')

you're out of luck.

Suse already defines a "suse_version" macro which you can use (even
in the build service), but it is a bit different from the one
you use: it contains an extra digit for "beta" versions.

We can define some macros for fedora and the other distributions
if they don't have macros like this.
