Spoke Prep? Can I use something else?

I am about to build my first wheelset (fixed gear with Suzue basic hubs and old Ambrosio 19 rims) and need a few more opinions about using spoke prep.

I don't have the acyual spoke prep but my LBS said to use Linseed oil, dip it on, let it dry to tacky, and go from there.

Anyone ever heard of this? What do you guys use?

Some spoke prep is rebottled linseed oil.
