should work just fine on any system with mock  by building in a chroot. 
building natively would fail due to missing BuildRequires on a non Fedora 
based system.  different vendors use different naming guidelines for packages.  
if you satisfy the dependencies you could do --nodeps and build.  rpm macros 
would probably be off.  cleanest and safest way to build would be always in a 
mock chroot even on a fedora based system.
