Bypassing source checks in rpmbuild -bc

We are using a hybrid development process in our company where we take an srpm,
run it through rpmbuild –bp and then check the prepped source (ie. BUILD/<pkg>)
and spec file into our source control system. We then do development against
the expanded source and will periodically use our source control system to
generate a patch from accumulated changes and regenerate the srpm.
We throw away the SOURCES directory after expanding to save checking in some
To compile things for testing/develoopment, we then want to just be able to use
rpmbuild –bc –short-circuit ...
The issue I’m running into is that it looks like rpmbuild wants to
unconditionally verify the sources, even though I’m trying to skip the
unpack/prep phase. Since we don’t keep the SOURCES directory around, the
sources aren’t there and rpmbuild –bc –short-circuit fails.
Is there any way to bypass thyis check? I realize this isn’t standard practice
– but it’s the method we’ld like to use if possible.
