Thanks Jonathan, it works fine now. Compilation using the spec file
didn't come to the end (due to some perl error), but it seems to work fine.

With both XeTeX and xdvipdfmx it is required to be root to build the rpm
files. Would it be possible to enable rpm compilation for non-root users
in next versions?

Thanks for your help,
