[Rpm-maint] Question about changing the name of an RPM

I hope I'm on the right lit and I apologize if not.

During the build process the RPMs get their names through the following Makefile line:


The final name looks like: host-

It turned out that there was a mistake in the build and $(RELEASETEXT) should not be "pre" but a different string.

Is it OK to rename the file, or does the $(RELEASETEXT) somehow internally integrated into the RPM and there is a need to build again?
