If by this you mean "isn't it a problem for other people that the mode
of operations is that you have to build RPMs and then install them on
the build system in order to build other RPMs", _absolutely_ this is a
I am not allowed to "pollute" the pristine build system by installing
random RPMs into it.
To that end, I have created a build system for OFED 1.3 that builds and
installs (and builds and installs, and builds and installs) all of the
RPMs into a "tree" that I am free to make in my $HOME. It does not work
as entirely smoothly as it could/should due to some (what I consider)
breakage in the packages themselves but I seem to have been able to work
around the breakage that I have found.
I don't yet build all RPMs either though. I've only built enough to get
me the test tools I needed at the time.
But IMHO, the OFED build system should be able to complete building all
RPMs without a) needing to be root and b) having to install intermediate
RPMs on the build system. AFAIK, it can/does not do this currently.
