2. Using "osc build" on a local machine [...]
Is it possible to build without being
root somehow?

The main problem is that I'm not root or rather don't want to do that as
root on our production systems.

Did you noticed this paragraph:

If you start the build as normal user (good idea!), you will be asked for
the root password of your local machine. You can avoid that if you add your
user to /etc/sudoers and edit your ~/.oscrc :
su-wrapper = sudo

and with visudo add the line (as root):
<your login name> ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/build

to the sudo configuration (of course without '<' and '>')

Is it a problem to ask your admin for these simple mods?
How do you manage to install the built rpms?
