Building RPMs

Just out of curiousity, why not just include EPEL and use clang?

I think the clang in the repo is new enough to compile 3.1.x and it seems like it's easier than installing the devtools gcc. Is there a downside to using clang?

And we're expected to support it :(

Just successfully built 3.0.12 RPMs. List of commands to run is
five times longer than Debian, but got there in the end.
