If you rpm -i an SRPM, it will break its components down into the SPECS and
SOURCES directory. From there, you can modify the spec file to do what you
like and rebuild it. man rpmbuild will give you more details on that. If you
need help with modifying the spec file, I suggest reading Maximum RPM at
rpm.org or finding an appropriate IRC channel/mailing list.
