A couple basic binary RPM questions

I'm new to rpm's and spent most of yesterday at work coming up with a
simple binary rpm file. My prep section unpacks the tar file. Which
contains 2 binary executables, a config file, and a shared object. The
build section does nothing. My install section creates a directory in
the opt/ folder and copies over the 4 files.
My question is: I've noticed that in almost every example I see on the
net for binary rpms, people are calling ./configure ./make and ./make
install. Doesn't that seem overly complicated? Why not just a couple
copy commands? All we are trying to do with a binary rpm is place some
executable files in the person's file system, right?
