rpmquery used to support --specfile option, but in rpm >= 4.9.0
this functionality was moved to a new tool called rpmspec.
"rpm --specfile" is aliased there to "rpmspec -q", but
there is no similar alias for "rpmquery --specfile":
$ grep -Fe --specfile /usr/lib/rpm/rpmpopt
rpm	exec --specfile		rpmspec -q

You can add one and see where the build stops next.
