It's not rpm version issue per se, no version of rpm executes 
check-buildroot by default. My guess: on F8 you've set up your rpmbuild 
environment with 'rpmdev-setuptree' which sticks some extra checks into 
your ~/.rpmmacros.

The actual problem of files in buildroot referring to buildroot almost 
certainly exists on RHEL5 too, you're just not seeing it because of rpm 
configuration difference.
