    makesrpm: Support custom version strings
    The script generates a source RPM by creating a temporary
    rpmbuild workspace, populating the SOURCES and SPECS directories in that
    workspace, running rpmbuild to build the source RPM, and finally copying
    the resulting source RPM out of the temporary workspace.
    The name of the source RPM file created by rpmbuild depends on the
    package version and release strings. Unfortunately, the format of the
    source RPM file name changed around OpenAFS 1.6.0, so has
    special logic to find the version string and extra code depending on the
    detected OpenAFS version.
    Instead of trying to predict the name of the resulting source RPM file
    from the OpenAFS version string, and having different logic for old
    versions of OpenAFS, use a filename glob to find resulting source RPM
    file name in the temporary rpmbuild workspace.
    Remove the major, minor, and patch level variables, which were only used
    to guess the name of the resulting source RPM file name.
    Convert '-' characters to '_' in the package version and package
    release, since the '-' character is reserved by rpm as a field
    While here, add the --dir option to specify the path of the generated
    source RPM, and change the 'srpm' makefile target to use the new --dir
    option, instead of changing the current directory before running  Also, add a dependency on the 'dist' makefile target,
    since the the source and document tarballs are required to build the
    source RPM.
    Add pod documentation and add the --help (-h) option to print a brief
    help message, and add the --man option to print the full man page.
    With this change, we can build a source RPM even when the .version file
    in the file has a custom format or was created from a
    checkout of the master branch or other non-release reference.
