I would like to add an other missing feature:
 * Lack of support for relocatable package

To make a relocatable package, you have to add a tag "Prefix: " whose the value is generally the CMake prefix.

If I mimic the Buildarch tag, it would be something like that

    MESSAGE("CPackRPM:Debug: using user-specified prefix (for relocatable package) = ${CPACK_RPM_PACKAGE_PREFIX}")

and adding \@TMP_RPM_PREFIX\@ after \@TMP_RPM_BUILDARCH\@ in the specfile template.

It's not tested but it's very similar to Buildarch tag.

For more specific information, see Maximum RPM ( [^] ).

Please, tell me if I must create a new issue but it's very similar to this one. Thanks.

Concerning the %config and %config(noreplace)
there is a neat interaction with the DESTDIR handling and absolute path name...
I'm afraid that the issue of DESTDIR and absolute path name should be handled
first and then I'll try to cope with %config...

Added relation with bug 7000 which is the one to be solved in the first place.
(my opinion)

I did create a separate 10935 bug in order to handle the relocatable
feature request separately

A small part of this bug remains which is the (noreplace) handling
this will be done in bug 0010294 [^]
