Default Makefile.common change

The way we currently check for branches is broken at release time. everything
that was tagged in devel that was branched for F-9 when you try and build in
koji gets a disttag of .fc10 and fails to build due to a mismatch. this has
been a minor issue in the past. but it is a big issue for secondary arch

Makefile.common checked for the existence of a branch file which devel does
not have. it is added at branch time. long term we probably need to add
some logic so that we always have a branch file and check it and fall back to
this method if its not there. it will help with always being able to
reproduce a srpm.

Since this is somewhat invasive i wanted to run it by people first. it
worked ok in my testing.

Seems good. Of course, there's 5000 ways to do it, with cut, awk, ${foo##*/}, etc.
