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/ 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.

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

8.89 has been removed by Debian (for whatever reason). Bump the version to 8.90.

@RazZziel: rpm is an optional dependency. Just install it (available also in the AUR).

Doesn't work with the --to-rpm--to-rpm option:

sh: rpmbuild: command not found

rpmbuild is provided by the package "rpm"

# New version:

# I think the PKGBUILD should be:
make DESTDIR="${pkgdir}" PREFIX="${pkgdir}/usr" VARPREFIX="${pkgdir}" install

# and in my case, because "/usr/bin/site_perl" is not in the PATH:
( cd "${pkgdir}/usr/bin" ; ln -s site_perl/alien . )

Fixed. (Sorry for the delay wasn't watching this package ). I am really not interested in maintaining the package, but I will be happy to help if anyone is having any issues with it.
