The package fails building in mock. extract from the output:

Processing files: macchanger-debuginfo-1.5.0-1.fc7
Requires(rpmlib): rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1
Checking for unpackaged file(s): /usr/lib/rpm/check-files
error: Installed (but unpackaged) file(s) found:

RPM build errors:
    Installed (but unpackaged) file(s) found:

Error building package from macchanger-1.5.0-1.fc7.src.rpm, See build log

Suggestion: ditch the empty NEWS file from %doc

Please fix the building problem and I'll be happy to do a full review.

However, I still think that the empty NEWS file has no value for the end users...
