I'm interested in this.  We've been building one for EL6.  Because of the
way grsec uses newer gcc macros, it involves building with a newer GCC than
ships with EL6 -- we did this by using the CERN devtoolset.  Our specs and
build process are here https://github.com/el-grsecurity/specfiles  -- I
haven't built and signed the latest kernel there for public consumption,
but the spec is available at least.
