After digesting lucida-sample.pdf coming with I discovered 
that much of the material is already present on a teTeX system such as 
OpenSUSE 10.0.

Instead of extending lucida.spec I stripped down the installation to make use 
of what's already present on the target system:
(a) Only the non-free font outline files and the additional documentation and 
licensing information by TUG are actually installed (in $TEXMFLOCAL).
(b) The LaTeX macros, font definitions, and font mappings are all used from 
the "tetex" package of OpenSUSE.

So, I would like to present a reduced lucida.spec file that extracts only the 
commercial part of into a personal RPM for local 
installation. Michael's suggestions have not yet been considered though.
