Problem with wajig rpm2deb command

Hi all

I was wanting to install a later than standard version of Midnight
Commander to solve some problems with the standard stable version
4.6.1-pre3-3, so found I had a choice between a tarball, a patch and an
rpm at the following site:


I thought I would be adventurous and run the command:

	wajig rpm2deb mc-2005112320-1.i386.rpm

It successfully created a .deb package which installed fine.  However I
soon realised that that many of the files in the rpm (eg /usr/share/mc/*
for example, as well as others) were missing from the .deb package.  Is
there any way round this problem other than going back to the tarball?  Or 
is rpm2deb still somewhat experimental?
