I noticed a few issues with the stunnel.spec file included with the
distribution that I wanted to report.
I'm building on an Amazon Linux host.

There appears to be a bad date entry in the changelog section,
warning: bogus date in %changelog: Sun Jun 24 2000 Brian Hatch <bri at stunnel.org>

Sunday is the 25th?

The stunnel.init and stunnel.logrotate files are being installed from
the rpmbuild/SOURCES/ directory and not
rpmbuild/BUILD/stunnel-5.37/tools/.  Copying the files from the build
area and retrying resolves this.

stunnel.spec:Source1:        %{name}.init
stunnel.spec:Source2:        %{name}.logrotate
stunnel.spec:%{__install} -p -m0755 %{SOURCE1}
stunnel.spec:%{__install} -p -m0644 %{SOURCE2}

rpmbuild also complains that the files under /usr/share/doc/stunnel/
are unpackaged.
I added %{_docdir}/* at the end of the files section to correct this.
