I'm my experience installing a source RPM will extract the file into a folder called "rpmbuild" within the users home directory. You may need to run "rpmdev-setuptree" before doing so; this command is part of the rpmdevtools package (in CentOS).
This folder should contain:
The spec file used to build the package RPM will reside in SPECS and the code will reside in SOURCES. In theory running rpmbuild -b <spec file here> should rebuild the RPM. If successful the RPM will be written to the RPMS directory.
