I've run the RPM build for RedHat/Fedora since 0.6.0, so I'm pretty good 
help with RPM writing.  Typically, the spec files are put in the package 
like so:
I would copy the vlc.spec.suse to the SPECS directory and just build it 
off of that, so each distribution has its own source RPM.  I watch when 
the rpmbuild runs configure, so I know which libraries and headers it is 
and is not putting in.  If it says it's missing a library, I normally 
ask if it's needed.  Some of them are, some of them aren't, some of them 
are optional, some will not even work in Linux altogether (i.e. 
machos.h, carbon.h).  Just let me know.  I've trial-and-errored this far.
