If you're building with a custom configuration, then you've got the
wrong approach. The RPM build process will override your flags when it
invokes %configure.

What you want is to invoke rpmbuild with the appropriate "--with
<feature>" options, and --define your kernel version and kernel
directory appropriately.

Cheers,
Florian
