This has been resolved, and posted to the thread (I think!).
I found the problem is caused by the script not enforcing directory permissions
through rmp2cpio... to fix modify this line:
chmod -R u+w,go+r-w,a-s .
chmod -R u+w,go+r-w,a+X-s .
It seemed to be dependent on cpio version and apparently there is a history of
it not preserving directory perms (but not in my own experience until now).
FYI - I provided a possible new build script to the maintainer Binh Nguyen which
extracts from tar.gz instead of RPM and is updated to version 2.x and does not
have this problem.
