A friend of of mine John Spinella is an Visio Studio ALM Ranger and the first person I know who could get the SharePoint builds automated in TFS. He and the Team have just released a set of build process / reference templates
The Build Release and Deploy (BRD) Lite is a set of build process reference templates that allows you to quickly setup a real-world build process in your environment. It leverages extensions from Community TFS Build Extensions, which provide capabilities for your Team Foundation builds such as automatic compile, build version number customization, build packaging, code signing, basic deployment functionality, and environment configuration file management into your Team Foundation builds.
The “Lite” comes from giving you a build template that you or your Build administrators can use “out of the box” for most scenarios. Of course, you can always customize and extend as needed.
