I saw that error, but I went and checked the line length in the %
description, and while they were right at 80, none were longer. I
checked -qip on the package and it didn't stairstep, so I ignored it.

/sbin/ldconfig is in glibc. How exactly will a running system not have
glibc? Simply by compiling this, it will pull in glibc as a Requires.
There isn't any need to -p /sbin/ldconfig to achieve the same thing.
