What do you think of the package?

Evaluation :

a) SPEC file contains redundant definitions

b) an incorrect "BuildRoot" is used

c) it has pointless buildrequires

d) RPM_BUILD_ROOT is used during %build

e) package is built without RPM_OPT_FLAGS

f) RPM_BUILD_ROOT is deleted during %install.

g) autotools files have to be regenerated because they are too old and
errors happend during %configure

h) Group: Text tools does not exist, Productivity/Text/Utilities may be
more adecuate.

i) potentially nasty compiler warnings : implicit declaration of function...

Well. it obviosuly does not comply with policies, I fixed all the
mentioned problems. but you should try to test it better in the future ;-P
