I did get this message if I did not remove the build tree before rebuilding, but
otherwise I could not reproduce the error, and I already had "%_smp_mflags -j3"
in ~/.rpmmacros. However, I removed _smp_mflags from make, and it works just
fine now.

I did not have any problems when building the package in mock, but I added the
requirements anyway.

avrdude.conf is a system-wide config file - and not just a sample file - and is
usually not edited by the users. But I added the (noreplace) parameter to
%config just in case, and moved avrdude.conf to a separate folder under /etc, as

The reason for not adding noreplace initially, was just my misunderstanding of 
what noreplace did, but
enlightened me :)

I uploaded the new versions to the same location. No errors from rpmlint no any
of the packages.
