Using .deb style subdirectories with rpm?

Hi all again,

I am going from a .deb to an rpm. The .deb has the files in
subdirectories such as /etc/init.d/foobar  I planned to just have /etc
in the file list and then do a copy command such as:

cp -Rf $whereRwe/etc /etc

Is that the usual way you can deal with a deb-style file heirarchy
with rpm? Is there a better way?
