Please take a look at the -t parameter of rpmbuild:
The argument used is -b if a spec file is being used to build the package and -t
if rpmbuild should look inside of a (possibly compressed) tar file for the spec
file to use.
rpmbuild does this by calling tar xzf tarname.tar.gz *.spec -O > tmp/1234.spec
but *.spec needs --wildcards.

I think this comes from all the pipes and so, the output is corrupted.
Whenever I manually extract the specfile from the tar.gz (see above command) and
build it it seems to work.
You can reproduce the effect by creating a tar (test.tar.gz) containing the
following file: test.spec
And then calling: rpmbuild -ta test.tar.gz
