I think this is a better solution than the R-based build order stuff I
was working on.  Good deal.

Do you have instructions for getting mock and smock running, or at
least a sketch of them?

I can do some building for e.g. EPEL, especially if that's the best
fit for packages going on RHEL5.3 proper, and as I go through setting it
up, I can document the steps on the wiki.
