Yes I added it when trying to make preview-tetex*.rpm work:

| %config %{_datadir}/texmf/tex/latex/preview/preview.cfg
... looked like it was intended.

I did some testing:

"rpm -e preview-tetex" removes it without a trace unless it has been
modified.  After "echo "% foo" > preview.cfg", "rpm -e" leaves
preview.cfg.rpmsave lying around.  So I'd expect that you suggestion
would work correctly.  (Maximum RPM [1] isn't very clear on this.)

Bye, Reiner.
