spectool [<options>] <specfile>
Spectool is a tool to expand and download sources and patches from specfiles. If you experience problems with specific specfiles, try to run rpmbuild --nobuild --nodeps <specfile> on the file which might give a clue why spectool fails on a file (ignore anything about missing sources or patches). The plan is to catch errors like this in spectool itself and warn the user about it in the future.
