Why building? What is wrong with the rpms that are provided? They
surely run on F14, don't they?

This is an entirely different topic.

Sorry, this very likely won't happen on TDF servers.

What *might* be possible (in future, not in the short term) is to
provide repositories for different distros with the released rpms/debs
(i.e. the same versions as available now, but installabe via your
repo's tools, but what won't be hosted on TDF servers is
distro-specific builds of LO everyone would get the same files, no
matter whether the user is running Fedora or Mandriva or SuSE,... or
whether the user runs F14 or F15.

building: Why not use your own system?
providing a repo with F14 specific files: Surely F14 has some kind of
contrib system like every other distro? You should get in touch with
the fedora project for that.
