RPM is not that evil. I agree that are lots of macros and tweaks but in 99% of the cases you don't need to get that deep with the spec.
I wrote many of the specs for TFM/GNU Linux and also i patched rpm to finally implement --fetch. The patch was taken into consideration by Mr. Johnson and i think it got into rpm tree. Back to the point: writing .spec's is not that hard. Takes a little bit of practice.
