Thanks for all of that.  I'm still getting the "Package does not exist"
error (full error below).  Even after removing rpm-build, `yum clean
all`, and reinstalling rpm-build I still get that error.  I tried it on
my home computer just now and it worked (both x86_64, but one intel and
the other amd).  What do I need to look at to fix this?

"error: line 38: Package does not exist: %description debuginfo"
