I would have agreed until I found the EPEL (Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux) packages.  Centos/Epel may not be good for working on the head, but it is good for working on products, and with the EPEL packages I've only had to build a few things myself.  That's also why it's on a virtual machine.

I'm probably going to be stuck with two development environments.  The above, for working on products, and Fedora for extending RTEMS itself.
