This is clearly a bug, I can't see any way to fix without a small patch.
Note that the DEB generator does not seem to suffer from this, is it?

When the xx.deb file is generated you can check it (without installing) using
dpkg-deb --info xx.deb
dpkg-deb --contents xx.deb
dpkg-deb --show xx.deb

I think the best current workaround is to change CPackRPM.cmake.

I agree and ended-up with the same patch (in CPackRPM.cmake).
You'll find my patch (against CMake master) proposal attached,
I'm not really sure it's the "right final fix" though.

Clint would you be kind enough to open a bug report for that please?
