No, that's not "bloated". That's "not up to date", or "not correct". "Bloated" means that it's bigger than it needs to be, which is not what's going on here.

I guess you re a lucky guy to have 200+ identical system with people who have identical needs. Unfortunately it s not my case. Then all my software are installed with a mix of kickstat + cfengine + autorpm and all are in RPM format. That s why i need to have that drivers in rpm format. i don't need a binary rpm but a source rpm is highly needed.
You can't modify whatever you're using to run the installer manually? Instead of having it run "rpmbuild", have it run "sh filename -s". Doesn't sound too difficult to me...
