I am trying to build curl with OpenSSL RPM and install it in /opt
location. I have changed prefix and other macros as follows:

%define _prefix /opt
%define _datadir %{_prefix}/share
%define _datarootdir %{_prefix}/share
%define _mandir %{_datadir}/man
%define _defaultdocdir %{_datadir}/doc
%define _docdir %{_datadir}/doc
%define _infodir %{_datadir}/info

Curl binary and man page gets packaged for installation under /opt tree,
however, other doc pages get packaged using default /usr/share/doc

* Listing files in resulting RPM
# rpm -qlp /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/x86_64/curl-7.19.7-41.el6.x86_64.rpm

* Snippet of 'rpmbuild -ba' output:

+ exit 0
Processing files: curl-7.19.7-41.el6.x86_64
Executing(%doc): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.igiGgT

+ cd curl-7.19.7

I am wondering why DOCDIR is getting set with usr/share path and how can
I change it to use /opt path. Am I missing anything in the macros
definition? Any pointers in solving this will be helpful.

I'm not 100% sure, but this might be because you are using '%doc' in the '%files' section of the spec file.

Try creating '%_docdir' manually and putting the files there ( with 'cp' or 'install' ) instead of using '%doc' and see if it works.
