All conditionals need to be specified inside the spec file on OBS as
far as I am aware.

The wiki text needs a clean-up for sure and it is more Fedora/Redhat
or even Jpackage specific.

That's also not right, conditions can be used within OBS by
specifying them in the project configuration and they are
actually important for building packages differently depending on
the project using links. One prominent example is Packman
where OBS packages are linked and additional support for
restricted codecs is added through conditional parts in the
specfile that are normally disabled on OBS.

Prominent examples for this are gstreamer-0_10-plugins-* in multimedia:libs, where you have several build conditions (BUILD_ORIG the one you want to look for).

'external BS' link to this package and override this setting in prjconf; works pretty neat :P
