As I understand it, there have been some changes in the checksum methods 
in the newer versions of RPM.  If you want to install package built with 
the newer versions, you need to add the --nomd5 option to the rpm 
command to avoid the signature errors:

     rpm -ivh --nomd5 smartmontools-5.39-1.2.el6.src.rpm

Of course, once that's done the fun is just starting.  Since the 
original was built for RHEL6, it may have dependencies on newer versions 
of other packages.

Your mileage may vary.
