I disagree. We certainly include PCbuild/*.vcproj, and Tools/msi,
which are also "distribution-specific". Likewise, we have plenty

So having an RPM spec file in the source doesn't sound bad to me.
Of course, if it's unmaintained (in the sense that it doesn't
actually work), I could agree to have it deleted. Make sure
Sean Reifschneider doesn't object.

People are apparently using it - at least, they report bugs
against it:
