4. rpmbuild -ba desktop-file-utils.spec

Actual Results:  The build process start and fails after a while with a hard to decipher error message, ending in:

error: File not found: /var/tmp/desktop-file-utils-root/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp

Expected Results:  It should fail with a clear error message mentioning the requirement of emacs to build the package.
