no, it won't. The resultant rpms will be in a .../RPMS directory. Then, as Alan
sorta stated you need to install this. That is done (as someone else stated)
via kickstart. Then re-build all the backages again, to make sure that you are
building against the necessary binaries, etc.  *then* you need to figure out how
to distrubute the packages onto a cd, etc...

   You can release software that's good, software that's inexpensive, or
   software that's available on time.  You can usually release software
   that has 2 of these 3 attributes -- but not all 3.
