Yep, Jenkins could be very verbose, but well, it fit well Continuous
Integration need (more than just a build engine).
And I'm pretty experienced with it :)

I'd like to. May be it's covered by OpenPKG project ?
BTW, we are many tired to see MacPorts or Brew requiring to download
all internet and build it locally.
There is a strong interest for RPMs on OSX.

What do you means by RPM batteries included ?
beecrypt and popt are reported mandatory in 5.x release (from what I
see in configure).

beecrypt internal means it will be build statically in rpm ?
So beecrypt lib sources should be included somewhere I guess

+1 for embebed Berkeley DB inside RPM, there is just too many versions
on BDB around and it could be a nightmare.

OSX could build it binaries including many formats, aka x86 32bits and
Take a look here, I detail build process for mod_jk in dual model mode :
