What could be the problem?

You define the variable to the verbatim string "`/bin/hostname -s`". In
the scripts this is substituted for the output of /bin/hostname -s, but
it fails in the %files section.

But the real problem is somewhere else -- why do you need to store the
build host name in the package?
