The contents of the file refer to older releases, so I suspect it is a
remnant junk file at this point.

The commend in the file of that package reads:
# Script to build ntfs-3g for several distributions using osc, the

I see it referenced as a source file in the spec file, but I don't see
it actually used.

I have removed the file and the spec file reference to it in my branch
of the file and it still builds fine.

So in fact, this is just a script the maintainer created for himself
back in the days (file last changed 6 years ago) to do local osc builds
across all distributions. probably to test before checking in and
'wasting' build cycles on the server farm. It is not used/referenced by
the actual build itself.
