Very cool.  I've got a half written package for this too.  Glad someone
found time.

A few suggestions.  (Note: I'm fairly new at packaging, so if something
I suggest doesn't make any sense, just tell me so)

1) The preferred BuildRoot tag is:

%{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%(%{__id_u} -n)

2) %{_datadir} can be used instead of /usr/share/

3) %{_bindir} can be used instead of /usr/bin

4) Does the package really want to own all of /usr/bin/*?  I'd think


would be better

5) Same as 4, but with %{_includedir}/ctrlproxy.h instead
of /usr/include/*

6) The proceeding / before %{_libdir}/ctrlproxy/* is not needed

Those are what I could find so far.  Again, I'm still a novice myself so
feel free to hit me with a cluebat if I've misspoken.
