I did this with CentOS 6 at some point, and it's worth noting that
you'll have to build your own AMI from scratch, you can't just update
the existing AMI- the base AMI's lack of support "taints" derived

I used packer's chroot builder, it was pretty reasonable and you can
find examples online to help you get started.
