No, really, they're not. They can't be, or they'd say things like
"--disable-drmaa"  instead of setting"build_drmaa" to be "no". Some
processed autoconf style information is used to replace fields in the
.spec.in file. The reough similarity in format does not make the
quoting verbatim.

What is selected to enable or disable or configure in the .spec file
is a matter of taste for the .spec file author. The only thing helpful
to reset from autoconf and tarball building is the version number, and
that can be updated in any source fepository in sync with new releases
(which is how it's usually done)..
