(Cc'ing the FE list for comments)

Looks useful.  I think this should be also automagically used for lib*, *-libs
and *-lib specfiles.  A quick look at the FC and FE package lists tells me that
this would result in few enough false positives.

Some comments:

I'm inclined to drop %{_datadir}/%{name} from the main package because 1) it's 
rarely used in library packages, and 2) library packages including such things
are not multilib parallel installable which I think is not something we want to
kind of encourage in a spec template.

Inclusion of *.pc files should walk hand in hand with Requires: pkgconfig in
-devel packages.  Do you think it would be a good idea to add that dependency in
the -devel boilerplate?  Another option IMO would be to drop the pkgconfig files
 from the template's %files list.

I'm not sure why installing *.m4 in /usr/share/aclocal doesn't usually in
packages get the same treatment as with pkgconfig through an added dependency on
automake, so maybe 1) leave it as is in the template, or 2) discuss about
"mandating" Requires: automake on packages that install stuff to /usr/share/aclocal?

Slightly modified version added to CVS (the project, not the packages dir). 
Comments welcome.

Works for me.
