One way to do this is to look at LFS. The idea is to make a shell script
to do what the LFS book says. I have done this once and are doing it
again (for various reasons) right now. It would be a simple, but
tedious, job to replace the LFS packages with fedora packages.

One downside with my current approach is that I am building a system
from tarballs and SRPMs but the resulting "distribution" is not RPM
based. I think someone could fix this when I am done..

Just ask and I will mail the resulting scripts (under the GPL) to
whoever wants them, when I am done.
