I have already done part of this for RHEL4 and RHEL5 derivatives. I
don't have a repository online at the moment for several reasons; I
could have one in a few days but most packages are quite out of date.

Actually I intend to get back to work as soon as I am able to put
together a sane build system, which I am currently working at.

>From my experience with CentOS4, many packages build with little or no
change. The lisp-based stuff is quite involved, but AFAIK this is the
case for Fedora too, or at least it was before Fedora started to
include packages like sbcl; I have not really been following these
issues closely. The only package I was really unable to build even
though I tried was ardour, because of the recent versions of glib/gtk+
required for ardour2.
