Yes. From the --help text:

[root at karsites ~]# desktop-file-install --help
Usage: desktop-file-install [OPTION...]
   Specify the vendor prefix to be applied to the desktop file.
   If the file already has this prefix, nothing happens.

So I edited the kompozer.spec file and added that argument 
to the call to with:

## installing kompozer.desktop
# desktop-file-install --vendor=karsites.net --dir=%{buildroot}%{_datadir}/a

I still got some errors, so I commented that out!

The other thing was I continued the build from the %install 
section with:

[rpmbuilder at karsites SPECS]$ rpmbuild -bi --short-circuit 

That's dealt with the desktop file error.

I now have the following errors:

this package was built for Fedora 13:

kompozer-0.8-0.4.b3.fc13.src [42.5 MiB]
Changelog by Ismael Olea (2010-02-23):
  - update to 0.8b3

Is my version of RPM to old to build this package?
