I am a bit confused: what the dtag macro is used for? 

>From what I remember, when el2/3/4/5/5 macros were not there, it was
used to identify which distribution you are currently building for from
within the SPEC file.

I was under impression, however, that it is always defined, so things
like this

%{!?dtag:%define _with_gtk2 1}

do not make much sense to me. Am I missing something?

Another point: what is the errata macro for? And I find it weird that
it's value for el2 is lower than for rh7.
Sincerely yours,
