This is what I end up doing on occasions as well, though I try to 
restrict it to isolated forward-compatible shared libraries rather than 
a full stack.

cross-distro compatibility in the name of Progress, so I don't expect 
direct SRPM rebuilds to halt their increasing annoyance and difficulty 
as time goes on.
