@Eothred: I don't know what you mean, rpmextract is already in the provides array, and it works for me...

Is it correct that this package provides the package "rpmextract"? Could you add that to the provides array? I get trouble installing other packages because they depend on "rpmextract"...

Adopted and updated!

Could you please add PYTHON=python2 on the configure line? I had to change this to get it working for mic2 and yum.

Exactly! We don't, in fact is there is a program that needs rpmextract or rpm2cpio directly we should probably just it to use bsdtar.

Yep, rpmextract seems to be useless for most packages...

Even in the official repos there are some packages which have it in makedepends (and work OK with bsdtar):
extra/gsfonts extra/libreoffice-i18n extra/nxclient extra/openoffice-i18n community-testing/hwinfo community/mercury community/man-pages-pt_br community/libx86emu

Actually this is quite funny. Having looked at rpmextract.sh again I see it does this wrong! ;)

rpm2cpio $1 | bsdtar -xf -

When it could just be:

bsdtar xf $1
