It's actually just a matter of contacting packagers to either ask for
a build environment (which takes an hour to set up on your own machine
at most) or giving them a pre-built (possibly non-working) copy and
kindly asking to write a SPEC-file free of charge.

Yes but still easier to distribute objects for each gcc/arch pair than
produce binaries for each distro/arch if they don't want packagers to
