spec patch for check section

Great, one of the tests fails even. :)  If upstream cannot reproduce it by
running "spkg-check" manually, it would be Fedora-specific.

That's splitting-hairs. You could apply your weird theory to every package and
move even applications into -devel packages. *This* package builds shared
libraries, which are used at run-time. A -devel package, on the contrary, is
fully optional. A run-time package must not depend on a -devel package.

> That's a comma. It's there to separate two ideas.

Doesn't matter, you moved the shared libs actually. That breaks the package
badly already. It's a blocker during review. Shared libs in wrong path, no
ldconfig scriptlets either.

> They can be moved back if you like.

It will be required for this package to pass review.

Why exactly do you move them to a non-standard location?
