The preferred value for the BuildRoot tag is:
%{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%(%{__id_u} -n)

The Summary shouldn't include the package name.

%post and %preun scripts for the info file should be added.

builds in mock

md5sum matches upstream: 
7f10c3307b84a19a4ab2fa4b3f2974da barcode-0.98.tar.gz

There is a problem during installation:
file /usr/share/man/man1/barcode.1.gz from install of barcode-0.98-1.fc4
conflicts with file from package xscreensaver-extras-4.21-4
