If you keep the binaries in the CWD or in the /kolab/RPM/PKG directory
then obmtool will pick them up. No need to rebuild everything from
scratch. You can even mix source and binary RPMs. The tool tries to
use binaries. If they are missing it tries to use sources. If they
are missing it tries to download sources. It is a usual configuration
to keep binaries of static packages like the development tool chain
(openpkg, make, binutils, gcc ...) and rebuild the everchanging
applications (kolab*).
