The Arch ones seem like they got copied from the RPM spec for fedora, which I
wrote. A brief explanation:

 - uwsgi_fix_lua.patch because fedora does not append the version to the
   packaged Lua
 - uwsgi_fix_rpath.patch because fedora frowns on hardcoding paths in
   the binaries: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines#Beware_of_Rpath
 - uwsgi_ruby20_compatibility.patch because fedora ships with ruby20
 - uwsgi_trick_chroot_rpmbuild.patch for convenience mostly, building
   for i386 and x86_64 poses some problems which I work around by
   tricking the mock build into building it in the current dir, then
   copying to either /usr/lib or /usr/lib64

These all seem fairly fedora specific, which is why they don't make much
sense for other distros like Arch.
