Building RPM Installer from Source


  Just downloaded the 3.5.2 source distribution - attempted to run the "installer.rpm" ANT target (via Eclipse on Windows).


I get this error:




C:\Users\me\Documents\openfire\branches\3.5.2\build\build.xml:1117: Cannot run program "rpm" (in directory "C:\Users\me\Documents\openfire\branches\3.5.2\work\rpm"): CreateProcess error=2, The system cannot find the file specified



Looks like I need to be developing on a RHEL instance to run that target?  If so, that's a disappointing limitation of ANT.  Are there any compatability libraries you know of to run the rpm task on Windows?  (None of my Linux instances have X and I do all my dev on my Windows box...)


Any other advice for building the RPM from source?
