I am not sure if this is exactly what you are looking for, I but I've 
created a small script that will sync with the SBo repository and then 
automatically build packages from the repo.  It will download the 
source, check the md5sum, and compile the package.  It is located here:


I am in the process of rewriting it and renaming it "sbopkg" and it will 
be an ncurses (dialog) based tool like pkgtool that will sync with the 
repo, let you browse your local copy of repo, allow you to read the 
README of the packages in the repo etc., and then similarly download the 
source, check the md5sum, and build a package.  When I have it ready for 
testing, I'll post to the list.
