It seems that the spec file walkthrough done by the build server before
running "rpmbuild" does not resolve this macro properly. The
consecutive "rpmbuild" call that the build server does in fact does resolve
the macro (I verified that manually).

Q: Is this the way it is supposed to be or should the build server actually
resolve the macro in the spec file?

It has to be defined in the project configuration file. We already
have that definition for the SUSE projects, but forgot to add
it for Fedora.

We now define it to "kernel-devel" for Fedora8/9.
