I haven't built it in a while, but the last time I think I was using 3.5 
and it built right out of the box once I installed the compatibility 
libs and turned off the SELinux bits in the kernel.  The latter may not 
be necessary if you don't mind all the error messages in the logs.  I'd 
also suggest turning off iptables until you settle on which ports you'll 
be using, then you can lock it back down.  It works pretty well.  I 
ended up going with QTSS running on a dual G5 since I had a spare one 
laying around and QTSS includes all the fancy management tools that are 
missing from DSS.

If you have any specific questions, feel free to email me.
