This document contains very limited informations about specs coding
style. Few poits which are related to subject:

- Build root tag
  $ grep BuildRoot: *spec | awk '{print $2}' | sort | uniq -c | wc -l
  and .. interesting:
  $ grep BuildRoot: *spec | awk '{print $2}' | sort | grep
'%{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%\(%{__id_u} -n\)' | wc

- Parallel make

  In macros set defined in default set wchich comes with rpm you can
  find %{__make} macro. So instead adding some non-standard macro IMO
  better is use standard %{__make}. If someone want perform parallel
  build they simple can "echo '%__make make -j3' >>~/.rpmmacros".

  If someon look for next sed regexp it can be something something like
  "s/make %{?_smp_mflags}/%{__make}/;  s/make %{?_smp_flags}/%{__make}/"

  It is simpler and it is main argument why it will be better use this
  in this form.

- Using %{buildroot} and %{optflags} vs $RPM_BUILD_ROOT and

  This ponit do not clarify which style was choosen by comunity.

And this is all. IMO to short and this mani cause of current style chaos
(which hides big amout of small non-critical bugs like xorg*).

Things like "%{buildroot} vs. $RPM_BUILD_ROOT" are IMO importand because
choosing ony one variant as common allow construct simpler indenting
tools for spec files.
