ok, problem is solved.
I used RPM_OPT_FLAGS to make rpmlint happy and boing ...

FORTIFY_SOURCE aborts the process if realpath() is called with destination
buffer smaller than PATH_MAX (typically of 4096 characters). Mozilla uses
MAXPATHLEN that is by default defined to 1024 bytes.

So I searched for a patch and modified the embedded xulrunner.

New packags are uploaded songbird-1.1.1-0.pm.5 and should be available within 
the next hours.

A big thank goes to a songbird user (Jon) who debugged the beast and pointed 
me into this issue with the PATH_MAX definitions. And as soon the problem was 
known, a soltution could be found :)
