I have installed dozens of things via checkinstall, but I never found that 
particular problem.

It would be interesting next time you find that problem you tell us so we 
can try.

What I have noticed is that it fails if the spec file from a previous run 
remains. It also generates a wrong "requires" clause on my system.
