Ok, it was just some n00b fumbling - I went back to the openSUSE 10.3 rpm 
repositories and found an rpm "gcc" which installs nothing, but defines 
links /usr/bin/cc -> gcc-4.2 and /usr/bin/gcc -> gcc-4.2

With this in place, the command 

rpmbuild --rebuild nut-2.2.2-pre2.src.rpm

goes further.  The output is visible at http://rogerprice.org/rpmbuild.log
It ends with 

checking whether to enable HAL support... yes
configure: error: "neon libraries not found, required for neon based 
XML/HTTP driver"
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.52627 (%build)

I looked for "neon" in the rpm repositories and found "neon-devel" which 
hadn't been asked for.  I installed it and  rpm -qa | grep neon  now 

With neon-devel in place, the build now produces three rpm's:

I'll try them tomorrow; meanwhile, another n00bie question : What does 
nut-hal do?  Do I need it?
