Is there a way I can export only one file from a given RPM?

Thanks.

In a roundabout way yes, use rpm2cpio and cpio to extract the contents of the rpm package;

rpm2cpio < full name of the rpm package here > something.cpio
cpio -i -d something.cpio

See the manpages fro both commands for the details and additional inforomation: man rpm2cpio

it takes hours ?
It's running for an hour or so...

Code:
rpm2cpio < /tmp/binutils-2.15.92.0.2-152.i386.rpm > /tmp/binutils.cpio; 
cpio -i -d /tmp/binutils.cpio; # This one takes hours/// :S

Try 'cat /tmp/binutils.cpio|cpio -i -d'?
