Well, I appreciate the pointer, but you missed the question (I think ?),
which was, can you use the sdk WITHOUT installing either the Debian or
RedHat package tools?  I dislike them strongly, and would skip them if
there was any possible way to do that.  I already have a tool called
rpm2targz on my Gentoo system, you can just guess what that does, huh?

Regardless, appreciate it.
