It would not solve the current problem (namely Samba relicensing): as 
libsmbclient does not change its soname, a simple upgrade of Samba can make 
KDE modules be linked with GPLv3 code.

That procedure that you described needs also to check license of packages that 
BuildRequires (rescursively) the package that is being rebuild.

Maybe the repo construction step could check licensing. That does not seem 
easy at all, though.
