- The package ships example applications in %{_bindir}

To me this seems questionable twice:
1. These application names are too general and likely to conflict with other
2. Installing example applications to %{_bindir} isn't necessarily a wise 

Wrt. 2, I'd propose to move these examples out of the base package into an
*-examples package or to make them part of the *-devel package.

Wrt. 1., I'd propose to move these applications out of %{_bindir} and to install
them into a different location (e.g. %{_libdir}/plotmm/examples), or to rename
them into something less likely to conflict (e.g. plotmm-{simple|curve}).

- The sources contain devel docs (in doc/html/), but they are not being
packages. I'd propose to ship these docs as part of the *-devel package

- Rpmlint complaints:

# rpmlint plotmm-0.1.2-1.i386.rpm
W: plotmm summary-ended-with-dot GTKmm plot widget for scientific applications.
E: plotmm description-line-too-long It contains widgets which are primarily
useful for technical and scientifical purposes.
E: plotmm zero-length /usr/share/doc/plotmm-0.1.2/NEWS
E: plotmm zero-length /usr/share/doc/plotmm-0.1.2/INSTALL

# rpmlint plotmm-devel-0.1.2-1.i386.rpm
W: plotmm-devel summary-ended-with-dot Headers for developing programs that will
use plotmm.
E: plotmm-devel description-line-too-long This package contains the headers that
programmers will need to develop applications which will use plotmm.
W: plotmm-devel no-documentation

General issue: You are using an Alias-name instead of your real name in
%changelog. I am opposed to this practice.
