If there were enough chunks of it that were buildable using pgxs or
similar such that they could pretty readily script up...

for project in `echo $LIST`; do
   wget http://downloads.pgfoundry.org/${project}/${project}-latest.tar.bz2
   mkdir $${project}
   cd $${project}
   tar xfvj $DOWNLOADS/${project}-latest.tar.bz2
   cd *
   ./configure --pgxs-options  --path=/usr  --rpm-deteriorata
   make install
   run-rpm-file-collector $${project}

The folks running Perl and Python repositories have gotten the
"toolage" together so that you can pull CPAN packages and very nearly
turn them into RPM packages.

If we have an interestingly large set of packages at pgFoundry that
are "that RPMable," then they *will* come.
let name="cbbrowne" and tld="cbbrowne.com" in name ^ "@" ^ tld;;
Rules of the Evil Overlord  #98. "If an attractive young couple enters
my realm,  I will carefully monitor  their activities. If  I find they
are  happy   and  affectionate,  I  will  ignore   them.   However  if
circumstance  have forced them  together against  their will  and they
spend  all their  time  bickering and  criticizing  each other  except
during the  intermittent occasions when  they are saving  each others'
lives  at  which point  there  are hints  of  sexual  tension, I  will
immediately order their execution." <http://www.eviloverlord.com/>
