It seems possible to have an openpkg target at the openSUSE Build Service (OBS):

Would it be possible to provide Adrian S. (OBS maintainer / developer)
with openpkg packages that are needed to e.g build the PEAR packages?

I still see problems that are to be solved, like e.g the specific
openpkg spec file.  But all of this might be solvable....
