Should that 54000 line patch have been added as a new source and

Well, according to our guidelines:
They should just remove the bundled libs in %prep:
"Bundled libraries (and/or their source code) must be explicitly
deleted during %prep."
So, could you file a bug against this package and ask them to drop the
