It can be built from the current SRPM ... you need to pass in the kernel
version with the command (all one line):

rpmbuild --rebuild --target <arch> ---define "kversion 2.6.8-8.el5"

KMOD files are different than everything else (see my other kmod post
today) in that the kernel version is not really relevant to the SRPM ...
only to the RPMS it produces.
