You'll get them if you build it in mock, which includes the buildsys macros.
So it'll be alright in the buildsys.

Memorise the guidelines and bear them in mind when writing specs ;-)

Up to you. If the package has a README or equivalent that says what the license
for the package as a whole is, that will usually do.

Comments are OK, particularly if you do something "unusual" in a spec.

Yes. A test build in mock revealed that a buildreq of nautilus was needed.

The "dynamic linker's default path" are the directories listed in
/etc/ld.so.conf, not /bin, /usr/bin etc.

It's talking about either. You need to own /usr/share/eiceil for instance so
that the directory will be removed if the package is removed.

I don't think so. There don't appear to be any permissions issues that I can see.

Yes. Just don't mix variables and macros that do the same thing, e.g.
$RPM_BUILD_ROOT and %{buildroot} or $RPM_OPT_FLAGS and %{optflags}.

I don't know if /usr/lib/nautilus/extensions-1.0/libeiciel-nautilus.so should be
in a -devel package or not; I don't know enough about shared objects to say.

I don't think so. You package currently claims everything under %{_libdir},
which includes /usr/lib/nautilus, owned by nautilus.
