Sending to ovirt-devel, in case other people have the same question...

From: http://ovirt.org/install-instructions.html

Building the appliance from source

    2. There are a handful of packages required to build the appliance. 
Some of these RPMs are located in the oVirt repository so make sure to 
follow the instructions above on installing the ovirt-release RPM first. 
Install them with:

       # yum install ruby ruby-devel ruby-gettext-package rubygem-rake 
avahi-devel rpm-build libvirt-devel hal-devel dbus-devel createrepo 
appliance-tools gcc

Switching to ovirt.mk from build-all.sh didn't remove the requirement to 
have all of the above packages installed for the build.

Most of these dependencies are encoded as BuildRequires in the RPM spec 
files, however rpmbuild itself can't be a BuildRequire in a spec file.
