One of the tenets of good software development is good documentation.
IMHO, documenting the fact that a package doesn't need a %build step is a good 
thing.  I'd much rather see a spec file with:


# Nothing to build here

than to see nothing at all.  You know that one of the steps of rpmbuild is to 
perform the %build step.  You can probably rightfully *guess* that if the 
%build isn't found, it will do nothing.

But it's like when you observe nature, looking for some exotic bird: the fact 
you do not see it doesn't necessarily mean the bird doesn't exist...
