Is %dist defined always (forgive me if this is explained elsewhere,
googling %dist didn't yield suitable results)? If not (e.g. in the case
of devel/Rawhide) this could lead to the package in FE n being
"older" (RPM-wise) than the package in FE n-1, causing in it not being
updated. Cf. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=160808

Really? Call me paranoid, but I'd rather leave that out.

%makeinstall worked fine for me

I don't know about that one -- has there been any consensus about
whether to include .la files?
