Thanks for responding. "Set +x" certainly seemed like the logical
choice, but unfortunately that didn't solve the problem. I tried doing a
"rpmbuild --quiet" but then my printf statements were suppressed also.

I haven't followed how recent Fedora & Red Hat's rpm 4.x has diverged
(advanced?) from the documentation, so there may be a global macro that you
can set that will disable the "set -x" that gets added in each section, but
the "old way" to do it would be to put
at the top of each section (right after %prep, right after %build, right
after %install) etc.
