This means what it says: "No such file or directory". Let's see:

The above can be simplified to (1 line only)
mkdir -p $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/home/dictator/supplies/ShellScripts/mine

Okay. Here is your problem. You are trying to install derot.txt from
the root (/) of your system. Most likely, you don't have a /mine
directory in your root, do you?

I guess the line should be starting via
install -d ShellScripts/mine/derot.txt ...

When you start a file location via / the computer will always look to
the root of your system. In SPEC files, we usually use relative paths
(that do not begin with a /) to denote files from our source tree.

Good luck and have fun!
