In an earlier reply I indicated that instead of a hang the build 
indicated 5 errors.  I changed the spec file to allow up to 5 errors and 
it completed the build.
so now I am down to one unbuilt src.rpm

This is it.  I am afraid I am extremely rusty on spec files and while I 
tried to follow the bz instructions, I don't know whether I improved 
things or made them worse.  While I managed to get rid of the not found 
errors, I ended up with a long list of unpackaged files.  Could I get a 
copy of your spec file for linuxdoc-tools or a diff/patch file from the 
distribution spec.
