If we could use the jpackage rpm, I'll be happy to avoid
such duplicate job ;)

But before then we should make ant developpers a little
more happy with our scripts and layouts. May be we'll
be able to adapt our modification to ant original script 
and sus avoiding problems (think about OpenPKG which could
run on non Linux platform).

The more we have in common with original ant script, the
better it will be. Also less works for us to patch it when
they (ant developpers) modify it for platform we didn't 
actually track since they're not (yet) rpm based.

ant use the antRun script which is not in jakarta rpm (bad error)
but is present under /usr/bin is jpackage rpm.
