Hi Andrew, if you are expecting a program or tool that can automatically
create an RPM for you then no but if you understand processes like
./configure, make and make install then in a lot of cases creating your own
rpms is reasonably easy.  As a start check out things like rpmbuild and
mock https://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/SetupRpmBuildEnvironment

It can also be useful to check out source RPMS to see how other rpms have
been created.   https://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/SetupRpmBuildEnvironment
