Build RPM on Debian with Maven

In theory, using the rpm-maven-plugin/ and having

alien
install (which provides both
rpm
and
rpmbuild
binaries) it should be rather easy. But I alway get it failing with a cryptic error (because some macros are nor expanded):

$ mvn package
...

Anybody has some experience in a similar environment?

Answer

Got it! the log [INFO] error: Unknown icon type: Icon_foo.png should be actually ERROR, because later causes an error calling rpmbuild.
