This is getting a bit off topic I guess, but...

The thing is, you are wanting to package your own "custom" RPMs with
macports... which doesn't really work, but you could just package your
own RPMs with a linux rpm builder, maybe "rpmbuild" is the command?
And then install those on your server.  Or just compile from source on
your server...

So your question just seems a bit strange to me, but maybe I am
missing some sort of subtlety...
