I don't know about ebuilds, but RPM's are insanely easy to build if you know 
how.  I mean, you can tear off a huge collection of RPM's in a very short 
time with a bit of knowledge of the spec file, and technically generating 
your own RPM's = compiling from source anyway (I did 5 packages yesterday in 
half an hour, though I doubt they'd fit the project's guidelines...).

I much prefer RPM to other systems I've used to handle this sort of thing, 
because they're easy to make and easy to use.
