Likely somewhere in the %files section there are gst-camera files thus 
rpm expects them to be there. If they aren't there you get an error so 
that the package isn't missing files that the spec expects.

If you would like more help post your specfile perhaps useful would be 
to know what you've changed from the specfile you took it from.
