Problem getting package to compile on EL6

I have a very weird problem. I'm trying to update the EPEL
branches of json-c to 0.11. It builds just fine on EL5, but on EL6 the
build crashes at

+ /usr/lib/rpm/ --strict-build-id /builddir/build/BUILD/json-c-json-c-0.11-20130402
extracting debug info from /builddir/build/BUILDROOT/json-c-0.11-4.el6.x86_64/usr/lib64/
extracting debug info from /builddir/build/BUILDROOT/json-c-0.11-4.el6.x86_64/usr/lib64/
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.Zd6awY (%install)
    Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.Zd6awY (%install)
RPM build errors:
Child return code was: 1
EXCEPTION: Command failed. See logs for output.

Running manually in the mock chroot, I get

$ /usr/lib/rpm/ --strict-build-id /builddir/build/BUILD/json-c-json-c-0.11-20130402/
find: cannot search `': No such file or directory
find: `debug': No such file or directory

What might be the cause of this problem?
