Ok, I'm digging into this a bit more... If I have to "touch" the file so that
it exists, doesn't that completely contradict the whole reason for using
This is what I have for the cjdns package in EPEL, it works for EL6, and the SPEC file does not use touch.   Maybe what Nicolas meant is that *something* has to eventually create the file.  In the case of cjdns, it gets created when starting the service if it doesn't already exist.

%ghost %attr(0600,root,root) %config(missingok,noreplace) %{_sysconfdir}/cjdroute.conf
