Problem creating RPM Binary Packages that work..

New here, so hello!
Anyway, relative newb. Know enough to be dangerous ;)
I've read through the docs, howtos, archives of this list.
>From the documentation it seems that the purpose of creating a Binary
Package is to install on another system, not having Macports.
I have tried to create a few RPM Binary Packages to install on a Linux box
that I have.
When I try to install the RPM I get a last line saying:
org.macports.darwin10 is needed by xxxxxxx
xxxxxxx being whatever package I am installing.
Am I missing something here? Apparently.
1. Can only install these RPM binary packages on Darwin builds?
2. Do I need to include something else in the RPM?
3. Do I need to take out Darwin references in the RPM?
As I said, I thought the point of this was to be able to install on
Can someone please let me know if this is possible and if so, what I need to
Thanks in advance for any nudge in the right direction.
