I have set up a few rbuilders for the security team, which involves
wanna-build and sbuild.  I think that packaging them is definitely
possible, though it will be a PITA.  A lot of the configurable stuff
really doesn't have safe defaults.  The postinst would probably end up
being very interactive.

When I set the software up, I based my work on the .debs generated by
the rules script in the CVS tree, so that directory certainly isn't
*completely* broken.

Since I have several rbuilders left to set up ASAP, I would certainly be
willing to help with the effort to create decent packages for it.
