help with source rpms with rehat8.0

Can anyone tell me how to rebuild a source rpm on redhat8.0. On 7.3 I used

rpm -rebuild xxxx.src.rpm

but this doesn't work with redhat8.0. Thanks in advance

Well, there could be other options but what about this?
First install it using rpm -i whateverrpm.src.rpm
and then it will copy the spec file in /usr/src/redhat/SPECS.
Then rpm -ba whateverspec.spec and it should create a installable rpm in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS.
