... snip packages list including a big pile of perl packages ...

Perl packages can have a huge list of nested dependencies, usually
spread to various maintainers. It can be hard to get all the deps build
in a coordinated manner, or at least it induce some latency. Would it be
an acceptable practice to build packages from other maintainers, in
order to ease the pain ?

On a related topic, would make chain-build works currently for the EL-6
branch ?
