This is a bug on our side.

More concretely, the error is caused by:

BuildRoot: %(mktemp -ud %{_tmppath}/%{namevr}-XXXXXX)

directive in the spec file. We "disallow" calling external commands currently from
the .spec preamble.

This will be fixed in the next release. As a temporary solution I would suggest putting
the mktemp call into %build section or avoid it completely.

Sorry for the problems
