The end user account password is what sudo is looking for ...

A sample entry which permits a single user machine to do root
operations when needed, but to stay in its non-priv'd mode
most of the time looks like something as simple as:
[herrold at new ~]$ sudo grep herrold /etc/sudoers
Password: [here, the end user 'herrold's password]
herrold ALL=(ALL) ALL
[herrold at new ~]$
... We need root rights to read /etc/sudoers, or else it would
have not been needed except for teaching reasons.

Hope this helps .. I wonder a bit at your description of
untarring, ./configure'ing, etc ... that is not part of rpm
building from .spec or SRPM.
