I got rid of the macros.

You're right, it doesn't install any cmake modules.  Moved it to BuildRequires.

The SMP seems to create some strange racing conditions and fails at random
spots.  It builds fine without the smp flags, so I added a comment to the .spec
> - Please make %files section more explicit.    
I changed the %files to make folder names and file extensions explicit, so I'm
not catching everything with globs. 

The updated package is here:
Spec URL: http://www.richmattes.com/rpms/stage/stage.spec

Thanks for the links!  I've been over all of the guidelines, but the Packaging
Tricks and rpmlint issues pages helped me out a lot.  I've been doing some
informal reviews on other review requests, and helping out with updating the
"player" package as I learn the ropes.
