Review of suphp:

Your spec needed a fair amount of cleanup. Specifically:

- You named the package mod_suphp, when it should just be suphp.
 - This also makes the spec file name the same as the package name.
- I removed all the commented out lines that weren't comments.
- You were using a non-standard BuildRoot. Replaced with standard BR.
- I had to correct the apache2 module generation process because %{name}
is no longer mod_suphp.
- You were stripping the apache2 module, this prevents debuginfo from
being useful. Removed this.
- There is no need to check that $RPM_BUILD_ROOT is /. Its defined in
the spec. Removed all of those checks.
- Made use of %{__install} consistent (sometimes, you just used
- Copy of GPL license not in %doc

I've attached a new spec that makes those changes. The remainder of the
review is against THAT spec.

rpmlint checks:
W: suphp unstripped-binary-or-object /usr/sbin/suphp
E: suphp setuid-binary /usr/sbin/suphp root 04755
E: suphp non-standard-executable-perm /usr/sbin/suphp 04755

The setuid binary and nonstandard permissions are expected, and the
unstripped binary is safe to ignore (debuginfo isn't grabbing it

All rpmlint checks safe to ignore.

- Package lists all necessary BuildRequires
- License OK (GPL)
- License file included in %doc
- License in package matches license field in spec
- Permissions on files are set properly, %defattr used

With the changes in the attached spec, you can consider this package

suPHP is an apache module for executing PHP scripts with the permissions of
their owners. It consists of an Apache module (mod_suphp) and a setuid root
binary (suphp) that is called by the Apache module to change the uid of the
process executing the PHP interpreter.

%setup -q -n suphp-%{version}

%configure \
	--with-apache-user=apache \
	--with-min-uid=500 \
	--with-min-gid=500 \
	--with-php=/usr/bin/php \
	--with-logfile=/var/log/httpd/suphp_log \
	--with-setid-mode=owner \

make %{_smp_mflags} suphp
