I wanted to do something similar quite a long time ago. Except adding
few more packages. My idea was to be able to rpmbuild the .spec file to
drag in all the deps for a build from git. It wasn't accepted as the
deps I was adding are not required to build RPM.
Now, every time I install fresh Fedora/RHEL I have to search for the
packages to install just to compile libvirt from git. Like a detection dog.
