Actually its not that the specfile is broken, its that libtool is. Well
you may have an old specfile that doesn't work with the version you are
trying to use, but even so right now its really hard to get an rpm to
compile correctly, there's been various workarounds to this proposed by
others I know who have tried. The best suggestion I can make right now
is to compile it and install to /opt so that way you can easily just
remove the whole directory later.
