:-)  I like that.  It did work for me though and my mythtv is humming along
quite nicely on it.  I'll agree - YMMV.   The one additional thing that I should
note is that I had to specify the target architecture on the rpmbuild line. 
This is my exact command:  rpmbuild -ba --target=i686 kernel-2.6.spec
