So that would make this one of the vaguest questions??
You have not actually said what your problems are not presented anything you are having issues with.

Based on current info i would say compile again.

You need to provide information on what the errors were. Were they dependency errors or errors in the code you altered?
If the latter, you may want to request your post be moved to Proogramming and post your altered code and the error messages.

Was there no README or INSTALL file in the decompressed files?

Depends on which file(s) you changed. Please tell.

If it's inside the telnet.tar.bz2 :
"tar" it again to get telnet.tar.bz2

.. And do rpmbuild -bb telnet.spec
( Or rpmbuild -bs telnet.spec, if you want a new src.rpm.)
..
More info, please. Nobody can answer, when you are not telling,
what you did edit, and not telling, what you want to achieve.
Want an rpm package ? Or ?
..
