My options to run a production system in our network are limited to a 
specialized release of RHEL6, which doesn't support mingw-*, so no, I 
cannot run the same switches as the ones Ariel documented in the wiki 
page on dev-snapshot.

Also Ariel is using RHEL5/CentOS5 which is preferable for compatibility 
options. If I had to build the most compatible release that would be my 
option too if it were not for the constraints hinted at above. It would 
be possible to setup special virtual machines without any network 
connection that had more liberties, but I'm not sure if jumping through 
all those hoops would be all that wise.

Other than that I think that for our unix/bsd-platforms the package 
format "archive" (a.k.a. tar.gz) would be a good idea for dev-snapshot 
builds without system integration. They are very easy to unpack, test, 
compare and are easily removable in the most clean way.
