Presumably.

The information at
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Licensing:Main#License_of_Fedora_SPEC_Files
is out of date with respect to the FPCA (it was written with the old
Fedora CLA in mind). 

But anyway, you're describing reusing existing, presumably copyrighted
material in an EPEL spec file? That is outside the scope of the FPCA,
and so there is no intrinsic problem. See, e.g., the "Non-Goals"
paragraph near the beginning of the FPCA.
