Fix for the issue sergey.orloff mentioned:

$ PERL_VERSION="$(ls /usr/lib/perl5 |grep 5.)" && sudo ln -s /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/Alien /usr/lib/perl5/$PERL_VERSION/site_perl/Alien

Seems that debhelper is no longer optional. Can confirm?

A dependency on the cpio package is probably missing too. Without it I get the following error : Unpacking of 'foo.rpm' failed at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/Alien/Package/Rpm.pm line 168. Which points to the following line : $this->do("rpm2cpio '".$this->filename."' | (cd $workdir; $decomp cpio --extract --make-directories --no-absolute-filenames --preserve-modification-time) 2>&1")

I think there is a missing dependency on the rpm-org package present in AUR.

La dirección de la URL de Debian da un error 404 La versión que existe en la ftp de Debian es 8.94. Saludos.

There is no 'rpm' package in AUR and official repository
