        When running rpm2pkg with option -s and -i error messages with
        'Leading path to strip too big' will be printed for pathnames, that
        are excluded from the installation by -i options.
        This may confuse the user and should be avoided.

        I'm not shure if this misleading message is generated in any case or
        only if no file from the rpm gets installed due to filtering by -i
        This problem has been detected with rpm2pkg from pkgsrc-2010Q3
        while extracting the open-xchange rpm's from the SLES11 version.
        Try to install only some parts of an rpm and strip more components as
        some of the not installed files have.
        fix rpm2pkg and suppress printing of such message if the file is 
        from the installation.
        I've no time to have a deaper look at the moment - sorry.
        Perhaps later, but I cannot promise this.
