We also have a build system (supporting RHEL2.1->RHEL5, x86 and x86_64 where 
applicable), but we don't roll custom ISOs, just custom kickstarts using the 
~ 500 packages in our repo.

Right, then you should consider just using the Mandriva cooker SRPM (which is 
usually more up-to-date then the binaries I publish at work - but I haven't 
quite finished 2.4.8 or 2.3.41 yet), and the compatibility macros:


However, we try not to touch libraries we don't really need to touch, thus the 
internal copy of db4 in OpenLDAP (but, you can disable this with build-time 
options, e.g. --without-db4_internal), and a lot of what we use isn't 
available in RHEL (or Fedora for that matter), but most is in Mandriva ...

This is probably starting to get a bit too off-topic.
