Prelink is perhaps the most common *cause* of checksum mismatches, so if 
anything you'd need to *undo* any potential prelink before packaging the 
files. See eg https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=437608

FWIW, Fedora 8 is truly ancient and hasn't been supported for several 
years now. You really should look into upgrading to a more recent 
version that actually gets security etc fixes, or if Fedora moves to 
fast for your purposes, to a distro that provides long-term maintenance.

%verify() affects verification (ie 'rpm -V' operation), not installation.
