Please do. I've knocked up and/or maintained a few of the GNOME
specfiles whilst I've been trying to build and install stuff out of CVS.
Generally, I've just copied the specfile from gnome-core and adapted it
for the particular module, but I imagine there is probably a lot more
that can be done to make them more similar, IYSWIM.
