The user 'brewbuilder' is redhat's internal build user account. It's
not on your machine, so the system is assigning the build to a
different account. It's not really an error, so much as a legacy
warning. Why rpm even cares who created a src.rpm is something I don't

The %files section of the spec file likely names these two files or
the directory specifically. Your build can't find these files. There
may be other errors causing them to not be built, or the spec file
erroneously wants them.

See above.
