olpc-kernel-builder (like olpc-2.6-rpm) is for automated build and
distribution of new kernels.
If you just want to build a one-off RPM then its really easy. Within
the kernel tree:

make xo_1-kernel-rpm


make xo_1_5-kernel-rpm

I've been planning to document the build procedures and infrastructure
around kernel and release generation, perhaps I'll bump up the
priority on that.
