I'll gladly accept your comments.  There are some things I made as a
transition from the old RPM to the new -- all this %def_with/%def_enable
will go away soon.

This is now fixed and committed.  However, I'm not very happy with the
way I did it, it's more like a band-aid.  Truth to be told, our previous
extraction of RPM was broken even worse.  At least my current
implementation relies on bash, dd, and xz on the host system and
extracts all dependencies, where the original one was using host's
rpm2cpio and was extracting rpm binaries only (forgetting about
dependencies like libpopt, etc.).
