Spec cleaner was written to support only the latest distributions.

I like spec cleaner a lot and I think it really helps cleaning up a spec

Using %makeinstall in a spec file is a bad idea. While it makes it work on SLE,
it breaks it on Fedora where %makeinstall is still the old broken variant.
Defining %make_install on SLE might be the better option.

I currently just replace %make_install directly with its first-level expansion,
that seems to be only thing working across all OBS-supported Distros (but
obviously might cause problems in the future).
