Indeed, rpmlint produces those complaints; the only one that does concern me is
the only-non-binary-in-usr-lib one.  There are a couple of questions:

What are the files in the -devel package used for?  If you need them to compile
things with tinycc, I don't see the point in having a separate -devel package
at all.  I tried running one of the example files without the -devel package
installed and it failed due to a missing tcclib.h file, so it seems like you
really do need the -devel package installed just to make use of the base

Are those files really arch-specific?  If they are (which is quite possible),
then they're fine there.  If they aren't, then /usr/share is a better place. 
Although I guess the point is academic since this only works on i386 anyway.
