This really is insane. The source tar.gz contains

openssh-blacklist-0.7$ du -h -c -s *
26M	fingerprints
797M	private
358M	public
1.2G	total

The SPEC file just does

  mv fingerprints/* $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_datadir}/%{name}

So there is 1.2 GB of data there that is never used for any purpose
whatsoever, its not even being used to build the final data that
goes into the binary RPM.
