Well, I know, I won't make friends with what I am going to say now, but
sometimes it's inevitable.

This spec is not even close to be in shape for inclusion in FE.


Just to mention a few issues:

* %define _prefix /usr/lib
Non-acceptable, if the grass sources want --prefix=/usr/lib, pass 
--prefix=%{_libdir}, but ... if this is required, it's strongly
justified to have doubts on grass source code.

* make \
...
    install-strip

Don't use install-strip, this will break the debug-packages rpm is
supposed to produce.


* Provides: *.so ....
This rarely can be correct.
