Chances are there is already and rpm available for the package you want. Have you checked on google for an RPM package? Unless you plan on helping the groups that distribute packages (only freshrpms comes to mind but I know there are more) it would be easier to just install it from an rpm that's already out there or just install it from the .tar.gz file (ie compile it yourself).
