Good idea. It's quite likely that you'll find someone has built it,
unless it's a really specialized piece of software that almost no-one
but the author is likely to use.

You know Lazarus? ;-)

You sure you don't mean Icarus?

There are many programs and libraries, which I would like to test, for
which no packages but source archives exist.

All the more reason to look and see if a spec file is inside the
archive. If there is, it makes removing the packages a lot easier than
if you use the make/make install.
