At this time Fedora Legacy doesn't have an interest in introducing 
the %{?dist} tag to packages that didn't already have it.  This means no RHL 
packages.  In fact, RHL is hopefully going to be phased out of Legacy support 
in about 6 months.

Our current build system does not support dist tags, however when we move to 
the Fedora infrastructure instead of our own we will gain that ability, and 
we will use the same dist tag that was appropriate for said releases during 
the time they were active.  FC3 .fc3, FC4 .fc4, etc...
