where to find a tar-file in a rpm


I am just reading

cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
rm -rf cdplayer-1.0
gzip -dc /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/cdplayer-1.0.tgz | tar -xvvf -
if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then
exit $?
cd cdplayer-1.0
cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/cdplayer-1.0
chown -R root.root .
chmod -R a+rX,g-w,o-w .

This text is in the setup. gzip is searching for a file: /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/cdplayer-1.0.tgz

If you only have your rpm, how can this macro be looking for a tar-file. It will not be there when you install it on a "clean machine" will it ?

Kind Regards
