This bugs should be linked with [^]

CMake-2-8 branch now contains a CPackRPM version which should
be able to handle user spec file.

However the 8988 bugs was about post/pre install scripts but the mean
to handle it may be the same:
   let the user provides its own spec file.

I would suggest to file another bug for CPackRPM which would only
concern the proper handling of user spec file.

We may then handle 8988 and 9584 on their own by either adding
their specific feature request in CPackRPM generated spec file
or tell that in those cases they should go using USER provided spec file.

I'll try to do that tonight
