Making a RPM

i was reading the other day that is possible to create your own RPM of a file if it is in TAR.GZ format. I was able to get the spec file for the file i would like to convert over to RPM i am not sure on the process or commands needed. i haven't been able to find any documentation on the conversion. gives you some of the info but not what you need to complete the conversion.

Considering that bitch X doesn't carry a rpm format of their current client. I would like to convert the TAR.GZ file to RPM format. And i would like to have some help on this please.
