Keeping tar permissions when building an rpm.

I'm battling with keeping permissions when the rpm is built. 

I tar up a directory, specifically using -p to keep permissions.
This tar file is fed to the spec file. But when the rpm is built, 
it never keeps the permissions that I've tried to keep. 

I don't know a lot about setting permissions inside the .spec file,
but was hoping it kept what it got.

any ideas?
