problem building gstreamer RPM file

I am trying to build the gstreamer 0.10.20 bad RPM file to incorporate my
changes and make it easier for us to maintain and distribute the changes.
The customer base is isolated and this currently isn't needed outside of
systems running my software. Anyway, the rpmbuild is failing and I can't
figure out what it is trying to do when it fails. Here are the failure

+ /usr/lib/rpm/check-buildroot
+ /usr/lib/rpm/redhat/brp-compress
+ /usr/lib/rpm/redhat/brp-strip-static-archive /usr/bin/strip
+ /usr/lib/rpm/redhat/brp-strip-comment-note /usr/bin/strip /usr/bin/objdump
+ /usr/lib/rpm/brp-python-bytecompile
+ /usr/lib/rpm/redhat/brp-python-hardlink
+ /usr/lib/rpm/redhat/brp-java-repack-jars
Processing files: gstreamer-plugins-bad-0.10.20-1.gst.i686
error: File not found:
error: File not found:
error: File not found:

In searching the BUILDROOT/gst... directory the .../usr/bin subdirectory
and the ../usr/share/gstreamer-0.10 don't exist. I captured the rpmbuild
output and these directories don't seem to ever be created. The only change
that I made to the spec file was to the configure options. This is built on
a fedora system for centos distributions.

./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-orc --enable-resindvd \
--disable-quicktime --disable-faac --disable-faad --disable-jack
--disable-mimic \
--disable-musicbrainz --disable-mythtv --disable-soundtouch
--disable-theoradec --disable-vdpau \
--enable-ofa --enable-shared --disable-examples --enable-examples=no
--enable-debug=no CFLAGS=-O2
make %{?_smp_mflags}

Does anyone know enough about rpmbuild to point me in some direction to
solve this problem? I can't even figure out what it is trying to do when it
fails or why the process 'thinks' that the directories/files should exist.

Thank you for any help,
Chuck Crisler
