Ok, it sounds just like going for a "make clean" is the solution then.

Problem wasn't with the spec file itself, just with the "tarball being
changed" while packaging. The idea of a clean packaging does contain the
value of reverting *everything* that was done after unwrapping the
tarball on its clean target. That's the only rule you need to obey to be
able to go back and forth in packaging debugging and still be sure that
you're in sync with what a fresh build will produce. Sorry if this
wasn't made clear in the first post.
