rpmbuild cpio read error

I've tried to rebuild some srpms I got from freshrpms, ran into this type of problem for some srpms:

error: unpacking of archive failed on file /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/lzo-1.08.tar.gz;400db4be: cpio: read
error: cannot be installed

What does this mean? The command I used is:
rpmbuild --rebuild --target=i686
