What can I do to avoid this warning?

Don't install to /usr/local/bin but to %{_bindir} (which is /usr/bin).

Ok, but how do I have to write this to the spec file?

Does your package use Autotools (configure && make && make install)?


Does it makes sense to post my spec file here, or is the link enough?

Yes, helped ;)

You use:

instead use
./configure --prefix=%{_prefix}
(%{_prefix} expands to /usr)

or even better use the macro %configure,
