Summary: perl-RPm-Specfile: update request to 1.19

None of the dependencies of perl-RPM-Specfile own the %{perl_vendorlib}/RPM
directory, so this package needs to own it.

It's just the usual case of unowned directories where 1) they get left behind
when erasing the package -> unneeded trash, and 2) with an umask of 007 or 077
for root when installing the package, they'll end up unreadable by world and/or
group -> broken out of the box for everyone besides root.  (I may have forgotten
some other problems.)

Bugzilla is full of reports like these, in particular for perl module packages
created by an old version of cpanflute which didn't do the right thing with dir
ownerships.  Luckily the vast majority of them have been already fixed.

(I see you did similar modifications to the perl-XML-Grove specfile I submitted;
that's different in the sense that its prerequisites own the %{perl_vendor*}/XML
directory so it does not have the umask problem -> non-fatal, which is why I
didn't reopen that bug.  Due to bugs in rpm (for example bug 89500), the "XML"
dir in it may be still left behind after erasing the package because erase
transactions are not properly sorted, but that's something that needs fixing in
