Good point. I've added this...

It would be lovely if we could add openSUSE build instructions to the page. 
May I be so bold as to recruit you for this task?

I'm actually doing this as well when I build unpackaged software (it's usualls 
the better method because it can't get outdated). In this guide, though, we 
tried to keep instructions simple and explicit.
