1. Asterisk basically has such a script inside.

2. Asterisk has an RPM package. An RPM package is exactly a reproducible
build (listing dependecies, and such).

3. You are reinventing RPM. Badly. Do you people really want to run:
   - As root
   - A huge blob nobody can inspect
   - that is executable, and hence has tons of places to add nice hooks

Learn how to use rpmbuild.
