Like Dennis Miller, I could be wrong about this, but:

1) it appears that the howto build information has been available all along
2) incomplete/incorrect SRPMS from upstream present the problems
3) the rest is challenging on a case by case basis (figuring out
what's missing from the SRPM and putting said into the build root)
4) apparently even #3 is documented in bug reports to the upstream
5) all of this goes out the door and into the trash with RHEL 6
