Packaging RPM where SOURCE0 basename != source archive name.

I'm trying to package subversion 1.6 for fedora 17, and I've created the specfile and everything builds fine under mock, however in order to avoid conflicts with the subversion version in the fedora repositories, I'd like to name my package subverion16.

I can't seem to do this, as rpmbuild complains that the basename of the url (the svn upstream location) in my SOURCE0 is subversion-1.6.18.tar.bz2 while it is expecting subversiontr-1.6-18.tar.bz2.

Is there a better alternative to simply removing the URL, and pointing to a local archive?
