building the bad RPM

I am trying to build v 0.10.20 of the bad plugins RPM. Almost everything is
working except that the rpmbuild process is copying some header files
(gst/video, gst/signalprocessor and gst/interfaces) and the
gstreamer-plugins-bad-0.10.pc file, which cause dependency problems in the
resulting RPM. I am not sure if the *.h files are really causing a problem
but the PC file does establish dependency issues. Since this is supposed to
be an RPM to distribute binaries, not a devel RPM, why are these files
being included? I have modified the spec file to delete the headers but the
PC file is troublesome since normal users can't delete it (rw_r__r__).

Thank you in advance,
Chuck Crisler
