We use cpack. Generally, everything related to how do we build, can be
seen in buildbot. Go to http://buildbot.askmonty.org/
choose a tree, click on a specific build, and then you'll see the build
log, with all commands that were used.

But, anyway, for rpm it's

  cmake -DRPM=xxx
  make package

You can configure your build as you like, but we build our releases with

    cmake .  -DBUILD_CONFIG=mysql_release -DRPM=fedora17

(this was on Fedora 17). The value of RPM define is used to construct
file names of the generated rpm packages.
