Spins can be done from the binary trees with revisor and other tools;  
no need to recompile from source RPMs unless you just want the  
education in how to do that (nothing wrong with wanting to do it the  
hard way, as long as you're wanting yourself and not someone else to  
do it, that is!).

See the Fedora Spins information; the revisor tool is in EPEL for C5;  
it's not yet in EPEL6, but it is in Fedora and shouldn't be too hard  
to rebuild from SRPM.  I'm sure if you dug around in the EPEL pages  
you might find out why it's not yet in EPEL6, but that doesn't keep  
you from rebuilding the F12 or even F13 SRPM on EL6 yourself (don't  
know if the version in rawhide will build/work on EL6 or not; why not  
try it out and let us know?).

See: https://fedorahosted.org/revisor/ and http://spins.fedoraproject.org/about 
  and https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Spins_Process#Creating_a_Spin
to see how it's done on Fedora.

While I've not personally tried it with CentOS, it should be possible,  
and even more so with C6 once it is out.
