Building a RPM is quite straightforward.
Since this package already available in earlier releases, you only
need to fetch it source RPM.

And then install and rebuild it:
$ rpm -i linuxdcpp-1.0.3-4.fc12.src.rpm
$ cd ~/rpmbuild/SPECS
$ rpmbuild -ba linuxdcpp.spec

NOTE: It will probably fail due to missing dependencies:
error: Failed build dependencies:
	scons is needed by linuxdcpp-1.0.3-4.fc16.x86_64
	gtk2-devel >= 2.10.0 is needed by linuxdcpp-1.0.3-4.fc16.x86_64
	glib2-devel >= 2.14.0 is needed by linuxdcpp-1.0.3-4.fc16.x86_64
	libglade2-devel >= 2.4.0 is needed by linuxdcpp-1.0.3-4.fc16.x86_64
	bzip2-devel is needed by linuxdcpp-1.0.3-4.fc16.x86_64

Which can be easily fixed by installing them:
$ sudo yum install gtk2-devel glib2-devel libglade2-devel bzip2-devel

Now do it again.
$ rpmbuild -ba linuxdcpp.spec

Thats should be it.

An even easier way is to build via Koji infrastructure.
