I'm not familiar with rpm but my packaging is just this:

1) package/compile: you'll need "redo" to build

2) package/stage: you can tweak this script to fit your distribution's
filesystem hierarchy

3) use the resulting package trees for your packaging: in my case
one-for-one copying

4) include install/upgrade/remove scripts from package/debian for the
packages that need them

Service bundle patches account for differences in paths or usernames
with Archlinux, when I find them.

It did not go unnoticed!
