I have to install a particular application "Aptana Studio - Community 
Edition" and this script seems to break when dealing with this.  I am 
not sure why yet and will do some further research.  But current time 
constraints mean I must get the package out.  I am confident that 
ignoring this step is ok in this case as installing the software 
manually is just un-tarring it into a directory.

For those who care
 - On FC6 / CentOS 4 - To Disable this you must hack the script as far 
as I can tell.  I am told that on New Versions of Fedora (and I assume 
CentOS 5) that you can add %__jar_repack %{nil}  to the top of the spec 

Have a nice day :)
