I'm not the person with the expertise to accomplish this, but would it be
possible to have the rpm build process check the license tag of the
current spec, query the license tags of BuildRequires, and die with an
error if a license violation occurs?  If would really help keep people on
their toes WRT license tags.  I could see it getting hairy with multiple
tags, though.

Just my $0.02.
