Since you provide a -devel subpackage, libxneur isn't purely internal to the
bundled xneur utility. A future package might BR: xneur-devel and depend on
libxneur. Hence, you should remove the rpath.

The more verbose variants prevent accidentally installing files into wrong
places in future releases. I already came across packages with man3 files in
the man1 folder, and also non-manual files in one of the man folders. This was
because "make install" put them into the wrong directory. Using the above
mentioned lines would have made rpmbuild fail with an error. Thus, I recommend
to use the more explicit lines in %files. It helps keeping the package clean.

Right. The warning can be ignored.
