A bunch of things didn't go smoothly and needed some hacking and poking, but the one that caused most burnt time was in the ./sugar-jhbuild build step where it complains about missing libsoup-2.4 for telepathy-salut.
I found a bunch of past email and a closed ticket about it, but no one said where/how they actually got 2.4 (the yum reps don't have it), some suggested 2.4 came with some other random install they had made (Epiphany?). I tried both manually building from 2.4 from source, which seemed to have no effect; I then tried yum install libsoup-devel, which also seemed to have no effect. I tried skipping the module for now, but I got a heap of fails a little further on and decided to ctrl-c the whole build attempt.
After a reboot (due to some resolution issues I needed to fix in the VirtualBox VM), I just tried the build again and this time it succeeded – not which step had actually resolved the libsoup issue.
