minor cleanups for pyflowtools spec file

There is one issue that I think is worth mentioning with this package. You're
using a generated filelist and using that to populate %files. This is not a
terribly safe way to do things, because it will not own directories that are

In the case of pyflowtools, no new directories are created, and the result is
the same, but its never too early to break bad habits.

This package is APPROVED, but please make the spec file changes as listed in
this patch before requesting a build.

Comment 5 Tom "spot" Callaway 2005-10-05 19:23:16 UTC
APPROVED. Also, in the future, if you want to get my attention faster, please
either send me an email or CC me on the bug. :)

Comment 6 Paul P Komkoff Jr 2005-10-07 06:24:43 UTC
This actually breaks on x86_64:
[stingray@ns SPECS]$ arch ; python -c "from distutils.sysconfig import
get_python_lib; print get_python_lib()"

Comment 7 Tom "spot" Callaway 2005-10-07 06:28:35 UTC

%{__python} -c "from distutils.sysconfig import get_python_lib; print
