[smokeping-users] Smokeping RPM

I'm (attempting) to create an updated smokeping RPM from a 2.0.4 RPM I
found that has a spec file and buildlog.  It also wanted a smokeping.init,
which I assumed was /etc/init.d/smokeping.  I built the RPM with "rpmbuild
-ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/smokeping.spec" and it named it internally and
externally with smokeping.noarch.2.0.9-0.0.%{dist_tag}.%{vendor_tag}.rpm  I
renamed the file and then I noticed that yum kept referencing the old name
internally as variables.  I guess it has an internal spec file inside the
RPM.  I went ahead and used it to upgrade a test server and it looks like
it's working, but I'm not sure what to check exactly.  The binaries are the
same, but I suppose they got updated.  The version # in the webpage for
smokeping changed and it's still working, but I have an uneasy feeling.  I
looked through the spec file and I see where it names those variables, but
I don't see how or where it defines them.  I've search online, but I'm so
new to this that I have no idea where to look or how to search for it.  I
checkout out rpm.org and some other linux resources, but to no avail.  It
also has a dependency for perl-Authen-TacacsPlus, but I don't think that
RPM exists anywhere.  When I install it manually it still insists that I
install it.  Any ideas?
