--- Comment #1 from Timotheus Pokorra (TBits.net) <tp at tbits.net> ---
looking at the history of this, previously rpm was happy with empty file lists
for sub packages:

"However, if RPM comes across a %files list with no files, it will happily
create an empty package file."

the change is documented here: http://www.rpm.org/wiki/Releases/4.12.0
"New warnings on invalid / dubious spec constructs: 
Detect empty %files -f manifest files"

and then in http://www.rpm.org/wiki/Releases/4.13.0:
"Terminate builds on empty manifest files (?_empty_manifest_terminate_build)"
