The problem is due to these lines:


The `%define without_release_url` was added to the config file because 
the tools and kernel source are not located in the `sources` directory, 
they are in the release's top level directory.

Removing `%define without_release_url` does not help because we get the 
error from the source not being found in `sources` directory.

I think the best solution is to remove the `%define without_release_url` 
from the tools and kernel configuration files plus the explicit paths 
and update the release scripts to have the tools and kernel source in 
the `sources` directory and the release's top level directory. This 
means the "release-url" is consistent in all use cases and I can remove 
the path hack in the configuration files.

The release's top level directory is just the RTEMS source packages and 
I think having a second copy is a minor overhead.

I have reopened #2952.
