Thank you very much, Fernando! That helped.

In case someone else needs the information, here's what I had to 
change/did wrong:

There is no i386 target. My kernel is built against an i686 target, as 
the kernel package name indicates. ( I just thought i386 vs x86_64)

Line 177:
Remove "%{?fc4:" at the beginning and the final '}' at the end, and do 
the same on line 158 (where package_conflicts is defined).
I commented out the two lines referring to fc3, but that is probably not 

Would it be a good idea to define "fc4" instead? If so: how?
