Still not clear on this, when I rebuild it I get the one RPM with no DB
support. ?

I completely agree with this, and never liked the naming scheme for the
official Fedora RPM's anyway.

I didn't personally add the cAos build info, and still not sure what's
wrong with having it there, doesn't hurt anything unless you explicitly
build for it.  Like having the oracle build info, it's there if you want
it (and some people have used it, make their life easier), but doesn't
hurt anything normally.

Some of this was legacy for broken RPM setups that wouldn't do these
checks, and were almost always added in response to things getting
hosed.  I agree that we've come along ways in the last year with RPM
building that most of this stuff shouldn't happen anymore and can be
cleaned up.
