I don't think SPEC has any open source benchmarks.

As far as I can tell, SPEC groups derive income by licensing their
benchmarks to integrators and such (although I know SpecViewPerf is free
to use). I would think they also have issues with proprietary 3rd party
software within their benchmarks.

I think they could be supported in the same manner as OSDL, but they are
not, so no open source from SPEC.
