The attached MANIFEST.in works to build bdist_rpm with one caveat. There's a bug in distutils on distros that compress man pages: http://bugs.python.org/issue644744

After applying the bdist_rpm.py patch on the bug page to my python 2.6.2-2.fc12 and adding the attached MANIFEST.in to revno 4947, I was able to successfully build an RPM package.
