Thanks to pkgutils and the rpm-how-to, it was pretty easy to build an rpm for NZBGet. I did notice a number of warnings/suggestions that I don't see when building the binary and I don't know if I got the dependencies right, but it works. I'm not sure where to go from here or if this is of interest to the community. I've posted the rpms @ http://dalrun.com/Linux/Software/Nzbget/#1563

"NZBGet is a command-line based binary newsgrabber for nzb files, written in C++. Supports client/server mode, automatic par-check/-repair and web-interface (via additional package). Requires low system resources and runs great on routers and NAS-devices."
