the problem was that the OP did even not have Fedora and YUM
and if he would state this at the very first begin of the
thread i would not have answered in the whole thread because
i do not know how tu build RPM's on other distributions nor
i am interested in do it

well, and that is why i started with "unpack a existing src.rpm"
and look at the SPEC file which is cleraly doable for packages
which are only a few KB small and have SPEC files with lower than
100 lines
