make a chroot of a rpm-based distribution

mach allows you to set up clean roots from scratch for any distribution or distribution variation supported.

This clean build root can be used for several goals:

 - making clean packages
 - set up chroots for services to run it
 - make disk images of clean roots (for example for UML)

Currently, mach works for rpm-based distributions that can work with apt for rpm.

Included at this moment is the necessary information to set up:

 - Fedora 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and development
 - Red Hat 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 8, and 9
 - CentOS 4
 - Dave/Dina
 - Conectiva 9
 - SuSE 8.1, 8.2, and 9.0
 - Yellowdog 2.3, and 3.0

Some handy features of mach include:

 - "caching" of downloaded packages using the build hosts's apt
   the build root
 - ensures clean packages by reverting to the base set of build packages
 - uses apt to resolve dependencies
 - parsing of BuildRequires to install necessary packages for building
 - build ordering when doing multiple builds
 - support for flavours of distribution
 - multiple build roots
 - locking of buildroot to avoid concurrent builds
 - optional signing of built packages
