I'd skip building the packages manually and wget the RPMs and install locally. Barring that I'd get the src RPMs and rebuild them locally and then install. And if that isn't acceptable I'd install the RPMs or the src RPMs into a local VM and steal the init scripts and what not.

No reason to reinvent just because your company has asinine policies.
