Not sure what you mean.  We don't have spaces in any of our
version/release numbers.  I'm not sure how checkinstall looks at
dependencies, but we just use the standard method (pkgconfig) to check
for them.  The .spec files are not necessarily up-to-date.

Patches to achieve what you want are always welcome, of course ^_~.
