Speed, usability, package deps (of yum and yum-utils).

apt-get build-dep
apt-get --build source

Do you need anything else?

I don't have much use for these.

What I need is a simple way to rebuild packages without having to dig
into details, basically

apt-get build-dep <package>
apt-get source <package>
rpm -U package.src.rpm
edit package.spec
[rebuild package]

This even works sufficiently well on underpowered machines with low
bandwidth connections, and is much less resource demanding than yum is.
