Two remarks:

1. Is there a particular reason for hard-coding pygtk2_version and

%define pygtk2_version 2.5.3-2
%define gnome_python2_version 2.6.0-5
Requires: pygtk2 >= %{pygtk2_version}
Requires: gnome-python2-gconf >= %{gnome_python2_version}

If yes (e.g. bugs in earlier versions which become exposed), then there
is nothing wrong with it, otherwise this is unnecessarily restrictive
(and prevents the package from being usable with FC-3)

2. The dependency on xorg-x11-Xnest seems questionable to me.

On one hand, the configure script checks for xnest, and complains if it
is not present, on the other hand I don't see that the package actually
is using the result of this configure check.

Also, there is a "Requires: xorg-x11-Xnest", i.e. the package pulls in
xnest in all cases, while it seems to try to detect/find
"/usr/X11R6/bin/Xnest" at run-time.
