Just to document the process, after I did that, I had:

# rpm: /usr/bin/rpmspec: No such file or directory

Investigating the problem I noticed that it is 'rpm --specfile' who says
this, and the problem is solved with 'yum install rpm-build.armv6hl' which
provided me with that rpmspec binary (this is Pidora issue, not related to
Owl, and it may be a feature rather than a bug -- but I think it is not bad
to have a memo within the list's archive).

Anyway, now it looks like this:

# build@...pi ~$ make buildworld
# test -d native/Owl/build || make checkout
# ln -s native/Owl/build/{*.conf,.rpm*} . 2> /dev/null || :
# BRANCH=Owl PACKAGE= native/Owl/build/

and so on.  Well, as far as I can tell, all this is described in BUILD.txt
with a short phrase <<Building on another GNU/*/Linux system is sometimes
possible, but tricky and requires that you slowly produce an Owl system
with multiple iterations of "make buildworld" and "make installworld".>>
So, any help with further tricks of that 'tricky building'?  I'd love more
documentation to read, but it seems that none exists.
