That being said, there is an rpm mailing list where you would have more
chance of finding what is wrong with your spec file or whatever.

rpmbuild has a couple of options that follow the build process of the spec
file up to one stage. check the man page
. google for maximum rpm, it is an outdated guide, but still works pretty

Otherwise, there is the 'rpm guide' book, but this one you would need to get
from a bookstore as is not freely available.
