I do not understand? Are you saying that is possible to pass options to your
script when preparing to spec file?
If I ran configure with option I like before doing 'make redhat' the output of the spec file
will look differently (if so it would be great and next time I'll do better to read the scripts
before running that .. ;) )?

Nothing to explain; you explained me: it was xrootd plugin that requested
krb5 not the krb5-plugin.

I tried to be useful but also this time you was useful to me instead. There was a bug.. but in my own understanding of your script :'( Anyway one thing was true : the xrootd plugin is included in the spec file
because there's no check for krb5-libs, but the krb5-plugin is not planned to be built
but after the krb5-libs are requested anyway because of xrootd :-$ ..

Ok, your job it was great anyway I don't think I'll die for this little strange behaviour

Tnx and best regards
