installed rpm-devel package but still same problems

I am trying to make a rpm for my software

I got the error unknown option -b

When I did look in YAST, It seems that there is a rpm for install/uninstalling and a rpm for builiding rpm's (RPM-devel). I check its box to install it and clicked "accept".

Yast asked for the dvd and installed the package. Didn't see any error.

But when I tried to build my rpm, I still got the the same error unknow option -b.

What did I do wrong or should I do more to get rpm building rpm's?

Can anyone help me?
