Have a look at the .spec file in SPECS. Your patch must be in SOURCES.

I would guess your referring to this line:
# groups of related archs
%define all_x86 i586 i686

so either i586 or i686 would be the correct choice for a pentium M processor?  I've found lot's of refrences that explain that you need to cosse one but nothing that explains the criterion on which that decision should be made.

i should copy the patch into sources before the rpm build?

thanks,

Jeff
