You're sure? I took these from the OpenSUSE wiki.

I like it. The RPM documentation is the biggest mess I can think of.
Lots of low level docs and nothing covering the deeper problems.

I want to do (at least I think so) following (in C syntax):

#if defined(DEBIAN) || defined(XUBUNTU)
BuildRequires: autoconf automake gcc netcdf3
#elif defined(FEDORA)
BuildRequires: autoconf automake gcc netcdf-dev
BuildRequires: autoconf automake gcc netcdf

After looking in the net again and again I found, that || seems not to be
supported for RPM, but only "&&". Also I'm not sure, if a "%else if",
"%elif", "%elsif" or "%elseif" exists.

So is the result (BTW it's a really strange syntax, have the RedHat guys
been crazy?):

%if 0%{?suse_version:1}
%if ..
%if ..
lots of %endif's coming

Any better way?

What's the content of variable opensuse_bs? A version number? Is
there be BuildSystem variable containing the destination distribution

For debugging: Is there something like "Print all variables" for RPM. This
would be helpful in case of doubt (something like "make -p").
