Some initial notes:

- Is the target platform stuff really necessary? Doesn't a simple
 make VERBOSE=1 %{?_smp_mflags}
do the job?

- You don't need to use
 %setup -q -n %{name}-%{version}
a simple
 %setup -q
will do.

- You probably don't need to
 mkdir %{buildroot}
as this should be automatically done by make install.

- You must install the desktop file as per

- You must handle locale files as per

- You need to
 Requires: hicolor-icon-theme
for dir ownership.

- You need to update icon cache as per

- Explicit requires of libraries (qca2) is not allowed

- %{_kde4_appsdir}/kmess/icons/hicolor/*/apps/gnomemeeting.png doesn't look correct.

- You're missing the source URL, ref

Is this your first package? It should have said so in the review request.

Also, I see you have applied for packager group membership. You need a sponsor, which also should have been in the review request and the blocker bug FE-NEEDSPONSOR should have been set.

If you do not have a sponsor yet I am willing to sponsor you if you convince me you know the Fedora Packaging guidelines (which, obviously, you don't - at the moment - judging from the amount of problems in the spec file).
You will need to submit at least one another package for review, and perform initial reviews of packages of other people.
