Talking RPM command question

I downloaded some progs i want to install but they are like :
prog-1.2-src.rpm which means they are in their source and needs rebuilding in that case the command would be as simple as :
Rodcl@linux rpm --rebuild prog-1.2-src.rpm
but after rebuilding, it install the program straigh away, now
is there any flag that would just rebuild the package for my distro and do not proceed with the installation ?
this would be very useful for backup of that program or to give to someone that might need it

Well the man page seems to explain everything in the section build options. The --rebuild command does a prep, compile and install. So if you would do -bp (prep) and -bc (compile). You should get the same result without the install.
