questions on writing own rpm .spec file


I'm new on writing .spec file. I studied number of spec files provided by other rpm packages. For example the apache 2.x

I read the httpd.spec and I found number of questions don't understand
I read thru apache online document or the INSTALL document in the tarball
the installation process of apache is just a few steps basically.
They are
./configure .................[a number of configure options]
make
make install



however there are quite a many of preparations work in the httpd.spec
e.g.
why it run buildconf in prep section

but why not
%prep
%setup

%build
./configure ......................
make

%install
make install
