I don't think it's quite as hard as you might think- just to look at the text file and see what's there. Anyway I encourage all to explore it even if you are not comfortable with making too many changes.

The package dependency part of the spec file seems fairly clear. e.g.:
Requires:       gdal >= 1.3
Requires:       tcl >= 8.3
Requires:       tk >= 8.3
Requires:       proj >= 4.4.9

adding another is just opening it up in a text editor and typing the line.

But it is probably better to sync that with Otto's 6.3.0 version before doing any more, as the GRASS svn copy is way out of date.

Hmm, maybe someone could work on getting Otto's OpenSuSE packages into that.

(no idea)
