Bad idea. Most RPM'S contain specific RH patches, most of them being path
fixes. Get the tar.gz in that case.

Second, there is no way to actually build on a Windows machine, so I don't
see the use of it.

Ever opened a UNIX textfile in Notepad, which is the default editor in
most windows versions ?

The RPM maintainer.
