Automate RPM package builds

Currently we distribute RPMs for vidalia and tor in our repositories. Building these is a lot less pleasant, and much slower, than building debs because of the overhead involved in launching VirtualBox VMs. This process needs to be streamlined first, either by finding a new solution to deal with RPM-based distributions, or VB needs to stop being recalcitrant and let me launch VMs headlessly.

The Tor spec file in my packaging-improvements branch ( has been generalized enough that it now builds on all of the distributions without any manual fiddling, but the init script still needs to be improved. When I add those, I'll move this to needs_review so it can be merged into Tor master which will streamline the autobuild process as well.

Currently in the process of specing (and eventually acquiring) a build machine & hosting for all of the rpm-related VMs, since my laptop build machine turned out to be too sad and inadequate.
