%track is fully functional in RPM 5 -- I've just checked it a few
minutes ago (see my reply on rpm-devel@, too). OpenPKG uses %track the
same way, it just uses a larger section prolog in order make sure that
the external "vcheck" package is installed (which exists because vcheck
depends on "perl", "perl-www" and a bunch of other packages):

#   special %track section support
rm -f $VCFILE\
set -o noclobber\
sed -e 's;^ *#.*$;;' -e 's;^    ;;' >$VCFILE <<'EOF'\
%__spec_track_post EOF\
if [ ".%{?___track_dump}" = .yes ]; then\
    cat $VCFILE\
    if [ ! -f "%{l_vcheck}" ]; then\
        echo "rpm:ERROR: Vendor source tracking functionality currently not available because"\
        echo "rpm:ERROR: URL tracking tool vcheck(1) not found under \\"%{l_vcheck}\\"."\
        echo "rpm:ERROR: You have to install the OpenPKG \\"vcheck\\" package first or set"\
        echo "rpm:ERROR: the RPM macro \\"%%{l_vcheck}\\" to the path of your vcheck(1) tool."\
        exit 0\
    ( echo "config = {"\
      echo "}"\
    ) >>$VCFILE\
    %{l_vcheck} %{verbose:--verbose}%{!verbose:--noverbose} -f $VCFILE || true\
rm -f $VCFILE\
