Thx. I've added a if-else section to the script and replaced all libdirs.
Is it right that ppc also uses /usr/lib and only x86_64 /usr/lib64? (I'm only 
using x86)

Thanks. added (and also for LIBGL_FGLRX)

I've disabled emerald to not require more dependencies than needed. I've 
replaced the comment in the script with this.

Thanks. This three seems to be the only not mentioned requirements (except 
grep and sed).

Sorry. That was my fault. I've uploaded a wrong srpm and spec first but 
replaced them a few minutes later. I haven't thought that anybody has 
downloaded them so I've not increased the release.

New ones:
SPEC Url: http://www.deadbabylon.de/fedora/review/compiz-manager.spec
SRPM Url: 

- update patch: differ between different archs
- update patch: don't hardcode the libGl versions
- update patch: add description why not ot use emerald by default
- add requires: xorg-x11-utils
- add requires: pci-utils
- add requires: glx-utils
- add ExcludeArch for ppc64 because compiz isn't available there
- keep timestamp of compiz-manager
