Please don't top-post on this mailing list.

Installing the SRPM as root will have put a spec file in 
/usr/src/redhat/SPECS and various source files in /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES

If you create a ~/.rpmmacros file as described at 
then the files will be installed in ~/rpmbuild/SPECS and 
~/rpmbuild/SOURCES instead.
