Building from a local src.rpm can probably be done (like in a lower
priority queue) but we need to see how long to keep the packages, how
much disk and bandwidth would be needed, etc. In the meantime doing a
local build using the same system (iurt) is easier given that you have
a fast enough mirror (and no download quota...).
