[cs615asa] Question about the %install step in .spec file

Hello everyone,
I downloaded the awscli-1.7.12.tar.gz and extract the files. In the 
folder, there is no configruation file. It uses python to install. From 
the README document, one way to install is by using pip install command. 
Here are my questions:
1. In .spec file, we have command "make DESTDIR=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT 
install". It is used for compiled source code installation. However, 
awscli uses python rather than configuration file. Can we directly pack 
up awscli-1.7.12.tar.gz?
2. If I can do, does the command in .spec file "make 
DESTDIR=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT install" be changed to "pip 
DESTDIR=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT install", or just keep the original format?
