Why the %makeinstall?  makeinstall is an anachronism and should only be
used if make DESTDIR=... install is nonfunctional.

I don't see the use of %makeinstall being discouraged in the packaging guidelines or even discussed for that matter.

If this is something that shouldn't be used or whatever, then you should probably have FESCo add it to the packaging guidelines. A lot (most of actually) of the packages I have make use of %makeinstall and this is the first time I have seen it being mentoned.
