first quick look and no patches:
- nss
PatchX: missing from spec?
rpmlint mingw32-nss.spec
mingw32-nss.spec:96: W: rpm-buildroot-usage %build %{__mkdir_p}
mingw32-nss.spec:103: W: rpm-buildroot-usage %build
mingw32-nss.spec:115: W: rpm-buildroot-usage %build %{__mkdir_p}
mingw32-nss.spec:123: W: rpm-buildroot-usage %build >
mingw32-nss.spec:125: W: rpm-buildroot-usage %build chmod 755
why eg. %{__mkdir_p} $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/%{_bindir} in the %build section
and not in the %install section?
and it's rather complicated so i can't take the plunge to review it now:-(

- nspr
%{_mingw32_configure} \
  --prefix=%{_mingw32_prefix} \
  --libdir=%{_mingw32_libdir} \
since _mingw32_configure already contains it.

in stead of:
make \
  NSINSTALL=$(pwd)/config/nsinstall \
  RANLIB=i686-pc-mingw32-ranlib \
  RC=i686-pc-mingw32-windres \
at least use _mingw32_ranlib etc or even better %{_mingw32_make}

i've got flu and fever so won't send any patches in this week to these
