There is a %exclude option that does "everything but this ..." filtering.
%exclude has some minor issues in various versions of RPM.
In my experience, its just as simple to switch to a manifest using
%files -f manifest
Generate the manifest at end of %install, and filter paths however you
wish with sed/grep/cut/awk/whatever.
