I tested your script in my FC5 and got the following results:
Package tested: rpm-build-4.4.2-15.2 (FC5 original package)
Result: If RH bug 206841 is present, expect to see a series of error lines
complaining about missing fields
**** Start of rpmbuild log ****
error: Name field must be present in package: (main package)
error: Version field must be present in package: (main package)
error: Release field must be present in package: (main package)
error: Summary field must be present in package: (main package)
error: Group field must be present in package: (main package)
error: License field must be present in package: (main package)
Package tested: rpm-build-4.4.2-15.2 (patched)
After patch the rpm-build I build lots of rpm packages from tarball
packages, and all of them are working fine in my system.
According to the tar command errors from FC5 original rpm-build package,
tar command expects to receive "--wildcards" as a parameter (to accept the
"*" character in "file to stract" field), and "xOvf"
parameters plus a "-"
(-xOvf) to extract the file. That is what I added to rpm-4.2.2/build.c file.
Do you think this problem is a rpmbuild "wrong parameters problem" or a
tar "expected parameters problem"?
Thanks for the info.

I've written a test case for this here, if anyone wants to try it out:
