Actually, that was a very loose comment. What I meant was: I considered 
trying to use the playbook from within the spec file so as to avoid the 
need for BuildRequires lines, but decided that likely wouldn't work 
because permissions while building seem to disallow the creation of 
files other than within the build, tmp, and current directories. I'd 
definitely use the playbook if I were just building from source directly.

Even that may be wrong. I'm very new to the concepts of packaging.
