They provide a tarball which builds them automatically, its very well done.

If you want them to run those few commands, you can pay...

I think it would be hard to satisfy all options here unless you intentionally
made the packages non dependant and possibly made empty rpm's that pull in
groups of packages:

I build as follows for my env:
$ make rpm RPMOPT="--with rgmanager --without heartbeat --without pacemaker --without xen"
$ make km-rpm

As you can see, I use RHCS, not one of the others, I also don't use xen etc...

Just looks like a crap pile of additional work that must then be maintained
at every kernel update. I don't want to pull in a xen kernel etc on my HP
physical clusters, there's no reason, especially for the sake of a generic
"build everything" command applied to the rpm generation.
