Thanks a lot for these remarks. I will change that even if I don't use
it for the RPM creation, because it could be useful for everyone.

Does it act the same way if I use %{__install} macro?

Concerning the Requires, it seems that rpmbuild check for Perl
dependancies and it should not be needed.

To be able to use GCfilms install script in %install section, I should
also add a --nocheck option. Depending on time it will take for these 2
solutions, I will use one of them. I'll let you know when everyhting is
