I agree that it's a bug in rpmbuild, but you still end up producing an almost
uselss debuginfo package.  I found a simple workaround.  Add the following two
lines to %prep to use hardlinks instead of softlinks:

%{__sed} -i 's!ln -s!ln!g' src/Make1
%{__sed} -i 's!ln -s!ln!g' src/Make.aux

In that case the URL tag should point to the Geda project page, since the gnu
project page hasn't been updated since version 0.31, almost 4 years ago.  Add a
 comment with a pointer to the page if you feel it's necessary.
