Sure. I think I'm closer, but I'm also at the point where I'm just trying
things. My current issue, that I keep falling back to, is the install
*INSISTS* that it has to add a - after version.


mkdir $RPM_BUILD_DIR/opt/smipmicfg-%{version}
 install -m 744 -d %{buildroot}/%{name}-%{version}

rm -rf %{buildroot}


All I want to build is a package to create /opt/smipmicfg-1.20.0, and copy
files into it.

What I see from the rpmbuild is
+ cd /usr//local//src//rpmbuild/BUILD
+ '['
/usr/local/src/rpmbuild/BUILDROOT/smipmicfg-1.27.0-.el7.centos.x86_64 '!='
/ ']'
And you see that "-" after the name/version
