Packer puts the desktop and menu files that it generates in the gen_menus directory. If the gen_menus directory is not included in the source tarball, you will need to patch the package to include it. See documentation in the patching section of the packer wizard for information on how to do this.
This is a problem with RPM, not with packer. What the Fedora people are doing is either living with the platform independent data package if the data package is small or splitting the package tarball into two separate tarballs and having two separate specfiles (RPM package configuration files). I would recommend one of these approaches.
This is perfectly normal. The autopackage package builder queries debian so that the user can be told what package is being checked for. The gentoo package builder queries debian to find out what the source package. Debian source packages usually have the same names as gentoo ebuilds.
Delete all of the file beginning with "cache" in the packer directory.
Decades of research by veterinary psychoanalysists has suggested that "a woodchuck would chuck all that it could chuck if a woodchuck couldn't chuck wood." This research, however, is thus far inconclusive.
