The RPM is built using the normal RPM tools: we write a spec file,
then run rpmbuild in what we think are the normal ways.  Nothing
special is needed.

For the entire buildout, since they're applications.  We use a
separate package (RPM) with a "clean" Python (nothing in
site-packages!) that won't be affected by general system updates.
