To what? Binary rpms? I don't know about src.rpms, but for tar balls you compile them then get checkinstall and use it to turn them into rpms. Example:

tar xzf whatever-1.0.tar.gz use xjf instead of xzf for bz2
cd whatever-1.0
./configure
make
checkinstall make install

The checkinstall will then turn it into an rpm and install it.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
