if redhat i requires x and y rpm else i require x y z rpm's in same spec file
The currently implemented means in rpm to make dependencies dependent on OS are using
the %ifos directive in a spec file.
Meanwhile, since the value for OS is "linux" everywhere that rpm is used (on linux), that
is unlikely to be useful if (my guess) you are trying to use one spec file for multiple vendor
There are several competing ways (rather than one simple way) to achieve the perfectly obvious goal
of having a single build recipe for several different linux vendor distributions.
Every vendor has adopted different build configuration, so there is no one answer ... OpenSUSE
is likely closest to being useful.
