Spec file cleanup

First pass (not a full review):

URL is actually:

* libqalculate buildreq should be libqalculate-devel, not libqalculate

* qt-devel >= 3.0 buildreq is pulled in by kdelibs-devel buildreq (at least for
all distros supported by Fedora Extras)

* cln-devel, libxml2-devel, glib2-devel buildreqs are pulled in with
libqalculate-devel buildreq

* explicit Requires: of libqalculate not needed because RPM will generate the
library dependency automatically

* I think you need to use --disable-rpath with %configure to prevent rpath

* only one desktop file should be included - use --delete-original with

* why the complexity of a loop in adding the four text files as %doc (as
opposed to just having "%doc AUTHORS ChangeLog COPYING TODO" in the files

* %clean section missing from spec file

* the TODO file is empty and shouldn't be included.

Attached patch addresses the above issues. Patched package builds OK in mock
and appears to run (and the documentation works too...).

- rpmlint nearly clean - see below
- package and spec file naming OK
- package meets guidelines
- license is GPL, matches spec, text included
- spec file written in English and is legible
- sources match upstream
- package builds OK in mock for FC4 (i386)
- BR's OK
- %find_lang used to handle locale data properly
- HTML documentation also handled properly
- no libraries, pkgconfigs or subpackages to worry about
- not relocatable
- no directory ownership or permissions issues
- no duplicate files
- %clean section present and correct
- macro usage is consistent
- code, not content
- docs not excessively large
- docs don't affect runtime, except for online help not working if --excludedocs
is used
- desktop file installed properly
- package appears to function correctly
- no scriptlets
- all previous issues addressed


- rpmlint output:
  W: qalculate-kde dangling-symlink /usr/share/doc/HTML/en/qalculate_kde/common
  W: qalculate-kde symlink-should-be-relative
/usr/share/doc/HTML/en/qalculate_kde/common /usr/share/doc/HTML/en/common
  this is common with KDE apps and has been OK-ed before:
