Um, not true. All depends on how you choose to configure RPM
before unpacking, and how you go about building from SRPMS
and otherwise setup a build system

You could ask how to do that someplace where you might get an informed
answer, RPM and SRPM and VCS issues are entirely not gonna be solved on

I also have a 100 line
	#!/usr/bin/make -f
script around that explodes SRPM's into a repository in ~1-2 hours.

About 1/3rd of the 100 lines is --help spewage.
