Although if you ever do need/want to rebuild from source, those srpms
are already out of date. There have been lots of updates for FC3
already.  So, I think in general, you'd be better off grabbing the newer
SRPM from your local mirror when it comes time for rpm rebuilding. YMMV.

OTH, If you just want to learn how to rebuild an srpm, then it wont much
matter much how old your source is.
