Not really; we did this all manually in the FC5 timeframe for the
failed-to-build-with-mock bugs.  Just need a generic blocker bug, then
individual package bugs that block the blocker bug, then my tool
prints out a nice report of what's known to be bad, and what's bad but
has no bug filed.

My tool runs rpmlint and rpmdiff against all packages as they're
built and leaves the resulting logfiles in the result/ directory of
the package.  I don't have anything that will parse them for anything
though.  I'd be happy to run such a parser if it existed (hint hint).
