pidgin 2.5.2 RPM build errors

Has anyone else had some minor errors with building their own
RPMs of the 2.5.2 release?

build system:  MDV 2008.1

RPMbuild errors with files checking towards the end of the build:
/files installed (but unpackaged)

/The files in question:
    /usr/lib/gnt/*.a
    /usr/lib/*.a

As these files are not used for the actual RPM installation of the
Pidgin app, I modified the pidgin.spec file by adding these files
to the section that deletes build files not destined for installation.
The RPM build and subsequent upgrade/installation then worked fine.

Perhaps someone on the dev team can appropriately mod the dist
spec file for future release RPM builds..

thanks,
Bill Pier
