BASEVERSION isn't related to the linux_base version. RPMs for RedHat 9
also work on RedHat 8 (at least in the context of the FreeBSD
linuxolator). So it's just a way to specify the right download URI.
This shared part in linux-gtk/Makefile needs to be refactored into e.g.
bsd.rpm.mk and then (after committing the move of this code to
bsd.rpm.mk) it needs to be enhanced.
I believe the technical term is "Oops!"
