If you can build the RPM, you do have access to the spec file. If
you're building directly from a .src.rpm with rpmbuild, it's embedded in
the .src.rpm making things a little tougher. Best is if you're building
from some kind of source tree and so have the .spec file right there.

These are rpm options, not yum options:
rpm -Uvh --replacepkgs my-custom-thing-1.0-1.i386.rpm
