OK. I am almost getting it.

I did a: rpmbuild --rebuild miredo.1.1.5-1.fc8.src.rpm

In otherwords, I did not even bother to open up the src rpm. I hope that 
won't cause too much of an issue with what was built on Centos!

So do I then do:

rpmbuild --define 'dist .el5' --rebuild miredo.1.1.5-1.fc8.src.rpm
