When i package proprietary appl i execute this script (
http://devzero2000.pastebin.com/f16cf0404) for filling the manifest on every
target package directory - but it is simple to change it for use with a file
list - and in the %file section use
%file -f manifest.list.
This is imho preferable because your solution and the trick that you want
work only if you build the package as the root user - a normal user can't in
%install set file/dir ownership to other user and this in general is
required by the package. And using the root user for build is no good. But
