Huh? May I ask the reason for that? ${RPM_BUILD_ROOT} is perfectly
fine.

Veto. It is a mistake. If more packagers attempt at sneaking in
dependencies on hardcoded package names where automatic dependencies
on sonames suffice, we will need to make this a strict policy - a
MUST NOT. We rely on rpmbuild's automatic soname dependencies. We
don't care whether the package which provides libsqlite3.so.0 is
called sqlite3, sqlite or libsqlite3.

Oh, please! Especially if that old changelog entry is useless anyway.
The spec file has been modified a lot since then without mentioning
the changes, packaging bugs have been reintroduced and things like that.

Please don't. Don't act as the ghostwriter of other people. Don't
use other people's names for work you did on the spec file. This
is really impolite IMO,

since Warren did not write this changelog entry himself. Apart from
that, the entry is quite incomprehensible (at least to me). And it's
spelled "exclude" not "exlude". ;)
