Bug#192422 is showing that specs without %build can trigger unexpected
behaviour.  The bug reporter did know what he was doing, he just didn't
know that rpm had a bug in it that prevented it from working as
expected.

So it's better to anticipate that there might be other unexpected things
when shipping without %build (either there now or added in the future
when the rpm maintainer decides: debuginfos do it this way, I might as
well make feature X do it that way as well) rather than letting
everything work for the trivial cases we're dealing with now and then
suddenly expose another bug somewhere down the road.
