Yoinks. Well, it goes to show how many people used that SRPM. :-)

Sorry about those -- I have most of those fixed on the trunk but
forgot to back-port most of the fixes back to the 1.1 branch SRPM

They're actually generated in the specfile itself.

Most of this is due to bad escaping (i.e., lackthereof) in the spec
file. I'll fix that up shortly. We're likely to do a 1.1.5 release
in the not-distant future -- is it ok to wait for that, or do you
need a new 1.1.4 SRPM?

Thanks for bringing it to my attention!
