Performing a mass rebuild at home

Hi there.

I would like to rebuild all the binaries of the current versions
of Fedora 12 packages (that is, only the latest update of each
package).  The reason I would like to do that is to extensively
test an experimental version of the toolchain.

Of course, the trivial "for k in $SOURCE_PACKAGES; do rpmbuild
--rebuild $k; done" does not work, and not only for build
dependencies: once all the dependencies are installed, many
packages still fail to build.  What is the right/easiest
way to accomplish this?
