I followed more or less what you described here some time ago so I built
some pkgs in a personal copr for this (probably not up2date anymore, but
what I have there still works for my needs)
See this blog post (as an example, also with links to copr repo etc) :

I'll keep that machine running CentOS 7 and I'll (slowly, time
permitting) consider doing the same kind of copr repo for CentOS 8 ,
hopefully one day
