Adding again; When I created a symlink (4.17.7-200.fc28.x86_64.x86_64 ->
4.17.7-200.fc28.x86_64) to test, the build got further but still failed.
I'm attaching the spec I am currently using. It's modified somewhat from
the spec generated by building from git (mainly to remove suse checks
and simplify things).
