sure, currently, I use the following spec file to package it (I've trimmed things like changelog to limit the space used):
--------------------------------------------------- SPEC FILE -----------------------------------------------------------------------
Name:          xfstests
Version:        20130415
Release:       3.git
Summary:     xfs qa tests

Group:             misc

Source0:          $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/SOURCES/xfstests-dev.tar.bz2
BuildRoot:        %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%(%{__id_u} -n)

BuildRequires:  autoconf, libtool, e2fsprogs-devel, xfsprogs-devel
BuildRequires:  libacl-devel, libattr-devel, libaio-devel

Requires:         bc, indent, quota, xfsprogs

The xfsqa test available at git://oss.sgi.com/xfs/cmds/xfstests.git.

%setup -q -n xfstests-dev

make %{?_smp_mflags}

# Dirty workaround, xfstests won't build if these two directories do not exist...
mkdir -p /var/lib/xfstests/{ltp,src}



--------------------------------------------------- SPEC FILE -----------------------------------------------------------------------

Before the libtool was used for installation I didn't need the workaround (mkdir -p /var/lib/xfstets/{src,ltp}). Additionally, there is a template spec file in xfstests git repository (build/rpm/xfstests.spec.in) that you can use.

I get the tar.bz2 package from git repository by:
git archive --format=tar --output xfstests-dev.tar --prefix=xfstests-dev/
bzip2 xfstests-dev.tar

btw: I did not originally write the file, I just maintain it, now. I suppose that Eric Sandeen is the one who originally wrote the .spec file.

When you get it working for packaging purposes I'd appreciate a post detailing what works.  I thought about packaging xfstests for opensuse a couple years ago but aborted the effort when I realized it was not designed to be installed at the time.
