Basically it's only troublesome because there is no built-in support
for the .src.rpm format, while there is for the .tar.gz. format...

But it was not a big deal to add it, to the "extract" phase:

extract.suffix          .src.rpm
extract.cmd             ${filespath}/rpm2cpio.sh
extract.pre_args        ""
extract.post_args       "| cpio -dvim"

post-extract {
        system -W ${workpath} "${portutil::autoconf::tar_command} -xzf rpm-${version}.tar.gz"
}

So for MacPorts it can remain in that format, if you prefer.
