oniguruma-devel is in Fedora, so add --without-onig for
reproducible builds if it should not be built with. Else add
it as BuildRequires.
Else I don't see any packaging problems.
slang-2.1.3-2.fc9 buildrequires oniguruma-devel and the old makefile patch has

rpmlint on SRPM is clean.
rpmlint on RPMS:

The character encoding of this file is not UTF-8. Consider converting it in

I got confused, I was thinking pf Patch vs. Patch0. Still a good practice, but not a blocker.

So fix the changelog ang comment on the patches in the spec and we're good.
Should be fixed in slang-2.1.4-2.fc11.
Excellent, thank you!
