Sorry for the small delay, I was on holiday...

I sincerely doubt this is related, as the prefix, exec, and datadir
parameters are not passed through.

However, I would likte to point that installing everything in /usr/share
is wrong. This directory is meant to include only the architecture
independant files. If you install everything in it, you put binaries,
which are certainly arch-dependant. For the record, what I pass for the
debian package is "--prefix=/usr/lib --bindir=/usr/bin".

Also, having a quick look at the spec file, it would be cleaner to replace
"make install prefix=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT/usr/share"
"make install DESTDIR=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT"

At the end, this will have exactly the same result, with a better
separation between your spec file and the actual Amaya build/install
