spec conditions

to work around the (unfortunately not possible) per-package buildroot 
problem I'm trying to use conditions in the spec file, ie.

%define edition standard

%if %{edition}==shared
Conflicts: service-premium
Summary: %{edition} edition

%elseif %{edition}==premium
Conflicts: service-standard


First I have to point out, that == conditions like %if 
%{edition}==shared are documented nowhere! I just made it by guessing 
and trying.

But the real problem is, that rpmbuild uses the last description in any 
case, so the description of the package is always "lim_procs=64" while 
the Summary is set correctly. Either it's a bug or not intended to do 
the right thing by design.

How can I solve this?

Kind regards
