In addition to a doc like y'all are talking about, I try and maintain 
the tarballs/custom RPMs in /opt/src/, and the compiles of said tarballs 
in /opt/build/. That gives you and instant clue (after years of not 
looking at that server) what had to be done; an innd upgrade, custom PHP 
compile, your own courier-imap RPMs, etc. Just an idea...
