Simple points :
- Missing zlib-devel, which doesn't bother configure but makes the build
  fail miserably :-/
- You mix spaces and tabs in your spec file headers -> Readability issues
  when using 4 spaces vs. 8 for tabs or vice versa.
- The release fields seems weird, why two 1s in different places?

Now the nasty one : The package contains files with names way too generic!
And the /usr/share/doc/howto.html file should not be there, copy it to the
pwd and include it as %doc instead of installing it to _docdir.


These files definitely need to have their name changed... not sure what
it'll break, though.
