Just a note: I had no look at the new package (rel 5) yet, I just answered the mail...

Some more comments:

* Source-Tags should contain the full URI to the tarball(s).
So in your case:
Source0: http://roo.no-ip.org/%{name}/files/%{version}/%{name}-%{version}.tar.bz2

* The make all is better written as: make %{?_smp_mflags} all

* The rm after %install is more secure, if you write:

  [ "$RPM_BUILD_ROOT" != "/" ] && rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT

  Same for the %clean section, of course.

* I would remove the docs after install with:
  rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_datadir}/doc

  and add (also add the ChangeLog) them via

  %doc user_doc/* ChangeLog

  Because, directly installing to %{_datadir}/doc seems not very fine -
  for me...

* And the spec is really missing a %changelog section! :-)
  [oliver moon SPECS]$ rpmlint ../SRPMS/fish-1.11.1-5.src.rpm
  E: fish no-changelogname-tag

* Upgrades (-U) still lists /usr/bin/fish in /etc/shells twice. :-/
  I guess a install (-i) with --force will also do this.

A question: is the xsel command really needed? For example, most of my machines (webservers, database, ...) don't have X installed and therefor have no X libraries installed. And to install all those libs just for a shell seems to be an overhead...

* OK:
  - Install works fine (-i)
  - Uninstall works fine (-e)

* Take a look at your webpage (http://roo.no-ip.org/fish/) and search for 1386. ;-)
